Re "Marriage Can Be Expanded," Voices, June 5: Marriage is not some government program that can be expanded like Medicare or welfare. It was created by God, defined as the exclusive union of one man and one woman. No person or court has the right to change that. Mark Bedor South Pasadena

By citing Mikhail Gorbachev's mention of "God on High," and calling on Ronald Reagan to call his bluff at the summit, Father Regis Combs (Letters, Sept. 13) has given us a graphic example of the awful gap of misunderstanding that exists between our two countries. The members of the Soviet political hierarchy have always been completely candid about their atheism. We might recall the U-2 spy plane flap when Nikita Khrushchev stated "Before God, my hands are clean." His staff made it quite clear at that time that the use of God's name in an ethical statement was merely a figure of speech in the modern Russian idiom.

Re "As gas prices soared, he filled up with prayer," Aug. 14 It is moments like these that you begin to wonder where sanity ends and delirium begins. To believe God would tend his concerns toward the price of oil is preposterous. Surely God, previously, kept gas prices low so God-fearing people would be more wasteful in their driving and spew more pollutants into the air to kill more of his loyal subjects more quickly than they would otherwise have. Time to pray for an improved catalytic converter, I suppose, to cover the period before the prayers for a fuel-cell car have been fully answered.
