Sound Off for Sunday

Who can marry? In the eyes of the opponents, can only religious people marry?

Enough PC: I find it concerning that someone who testifies truthfully in a court case gets crushed under the weight of political correctness.

Enough PC 2: I am one who’s fed up with the humiliation of Paula Deen. Political correctness is a failed and shameful atrocity. Next they’ll tell us we can’t say anything about the misguided politicians who are selling our values and aspirations down the drain.

Just chill: â Wâ hile youâ were tailgating and itching to pass me, I was driving at the posted speed limit on that winding, two-lane road that runs through my neighborhood.

Stay out of it: Why are governments involved in marriage in the first place? Cohabitation is a personal choice and people should be able to live with whoever they choose. Marriage should be the province of the Church; others could make civil contracts.

Shun her: Paula Deen should have been shunned because of the D-word (diabetes) before we even learned about her use of the N-word.

Don’t take sides: What happened to journalism that reports the facts without taking sides? The fact is that the Supreme Court overturned DOMA, not that clergy and congressmen don’t like it. If you’re going to report that, then you have to report about all the people who do like it. 

Love it: I, for one, love the Sound Off column, and I miss it when it isn’t printed. If you need help reading and sorting through all the submissions, I volunteer. Comments about politics or any subject, just keep them coming. Love me that Sound Off.

We’ll be last: The South was the last region to accept racial integration and women’s rights. The South will be the last region to accept gay marriage.

Speak up: If more people would speak up about all the uninhabitable, abandoned buildings in Coweta County we could get something accomplished. Look at the Newnan House Motel, for example. Drove by there today and the courtyard is clean, grass is mowed and it does look better. Keep working.

Tattoo not: If you ever want visual proof of how depraved our culture has become,all you have to do is look at how many tattoos and piercings you see on people. A complete disregard for who they are and a total lack of education.

Oops: Loved The Times-Herald headline in the Community Forum about Sen. Chambliss’ desire to “protect the pubic.” Given the history of the moral situation in Washington, I would bet that he’s one of the few in that town who is concerned about protecting the pubic. What a great headline and good for a really big laugh. As we used to say in Athens, “Let the Big Dawg spell.” (Editor’s note: We call that misspelling an “oops” and apologize.)
