RELIGION: Referendum inspires Catholic bashing

It appears that Referendum 74 has evolved into a prime opportunity to disparage the Catholic Church.

It amazes me the number of people who are free with their suggestions for the reformation of the church, and those who relate their disappointing experiences with the church. They seem to forget that there are a number of other churches also opposed to Referendum 74 and also collecting petition signatures.

I believe that I have the right to at least vote on the issue instead of being dictated to by the governor. So I would suggest that all the reformers, the haters and The News Tribune lay off of the religion and focus more on the democratic process.

If the people of Washington want same-sex marriage, then let them vote. And if you don’t like the outcome of the vote, many roads lead out of the state.
