Letter: Teachings of Jesus

To the Editor:

On Aug. 2 in the letter headlined “Republicans and Christianity,” the writer suggests that we should follow the “…prime points of Jesus’ teachings into our daily lives."  One specifically, “…do unto other that which you would want done unto you…”

Wait just a minute!  Isn’t that what Harvey Weinstein, CBS president Les Moonves, Willow Creek pastor Bill Hybels, and many others who got caught up in the #MeToo movement were doing?

They treated women as sex objects because they wanted the women to treat them as sex objects. Would that hold up in court?  “Your Honor, I was just following the teachings of Jesus."
