Herald is wrong on same-sex marriage

  • Article
text size: AAA

I'm not at all surprised at the Herald's endorsement of homosexual "marriage." As a longtime reader of the Herald, it does hurt! However, it goes right along with today's attack on family and children.

One questions this old friend, regarding how those enlightened souls on their editorial board who suddenly seem to be infused with a knowledge that so many other's have missed since time immortal. Were their parents and grandparents since the beginning of time simply wrong on living their lives beholden to God's clear words on this issue? "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh," or the commandment given to Moses "Honor thy father and thy mother." It was not honor thy father and father, or mother and mother.

As a society we must not confuse tolerance with what is or is not moral. There's a huge difference between civil rights and chosen sexual behavior. When we allow homosexual "marriage" we create a same-sex family. Children grow up not understanding the proper relationship between a man and a woman, a husband and wife. Partner A and B on the bogus wedding certificate attest to that.

The two most loving dads can never provide the unique nurturing skills of the missing mom, and vice versa. All past studies show the damage that often occurs to the children when a split family occurs.

Call your legislators today and stop this foolishness from happening. Demand that they protect the God-given gift of traditional/sacramental marriage.
