From the Right: Gay Marriage

I support the amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman. I completely understand that there are heartfelt differences of opinion on the issue. For me, however, and for many people, support of marriage between one man and one woman is a deeply-held value, and this belief is not hateful or discriminatory. The people who share the belief that marriage is between a man and a woman deserve equal standing in the argument over same-sex marriage.

Marriage has been the most fundamental institution of our civilization for ages upon ages, in every culture, and protecting marriage is very important to the well-being of families. This is why the state, through its elected officials, has the absolute right to strengthen and defend marriage.

Same-sex marriages are simply unnatural. If it made any sense for a man and a man or a woman and a woman to be married, then they’d be able to reproduce naturally. Noah brought one male and one female of each species on his ship so they could repopulate. He also brought his wife (not male “partner”).

The Democrats in office are making a huge mistake by being such big fans of gay marriage. But I’m happy they’re doing so.

The voters are going to vote Republican because they’re disgusted that the Democrats would support doing away with traditional marriage, and Amendment C is what’s going to bring those who will vote Republican out to the polls.
