As a fellow Christian and an American, I find Ambrose Flynn’s letter both disturbing and alarming (July 21).

George Bush, moral? He lied to and manipulated the American people. Remember WMDs? There weren’t any.

We all have free will. As a Christian, it is my duty to share the word of God, not shove it down someone’s throat. As a peaceful person, I am open-minded to how others live and believe. I don’t necessarily agree with them, or their lifestyle choices or politics, but it is not up to me or another Christian to condemn or ridicule those who don’t share the same beliefs as Christians.

People make choices, choices that, as an American and a Christian, I have no right making for others, and neither should Mr. Flynn – or anyone else for that matter. It’s not our duty to be against anything that is a free will choice.

What gives anyone the right to tell a woman she can’t have an abortion? It’s not up to us as Christians to impose our beliefs or to make laws imposing those beliefs.

Humans are not automatons. God didn’t intend us to be. He could have given us no choices at all.

Trying to regulate various ways that people live, strips people of the free will that God, himself, gave us.
