Letter: Vote no on the marriage amendment
To those who are "Concerned for Children" please accept this personal example:
My former son-in-law 'came out' 17 years ago. Prior to his 'coming out' he blessed me with two precious granddaughters. During the last 17 years he has continued to be a superb, loving parent to his daughters. One of my granddaughters went on to college, has now married and made me a great-grandparent. The other is full of exuberance and excitement in this new endeavor called college. I am not concerned for them, I am thankful that they continued to have a father who cared deeply for them.
The underlying issue is weather or not it is morally wrong to be homosexual and ... is homosexuality a choice? I personally struggled with that issue until I was asked this question by a retired pastor many years ago.
When did you decide to be straight?
Well, the fact is ... I didn't decide ... I just am.
Therefore is not the same true for the gay and lesbian?
How do we condemn someone for being who they are?
Please vote no on the Marriage Amendment.
