It’s time to take a stand on marriage

To the editor:

It’s difficult to see the morals of our society crumble. It is immoral and unnatural to join two people of the same sex in marriage — or should I say nonmarriage?

Marriage is the joining of opposites, a man and a woman in the eyes of the Lord. Gays want to change this definition.

Do we in the very near future want our children to “learn” in the politically correct schools and textbooks that there are two kinds of “marriages” — one between a man and a woman, and one between same sexes.

Do we want children thinking same sex “marriages” are OK, and the possibility of more and more children growing up to be homosexuals?

Evan Gerstmann, author of Same Sex Marriage and the Constitution and a legal scholar promoting the idea, admitted that we would probably have to get used to the idea of threesomes, foursomes, etc. He realized that it could be seen as “discrimination” if we deny anyone the right to marry the person of their choice. In the case of a man or woman who wanted to marry someone who was already married, that’s just what we would be doing if we prohibited such unions.

Time to take a stand! Contact your senators, assemblypersons and congresspersons and tell them how you feel.
