Re: “Gay marriage race begins” (TNT, 6-6).

Please get it right. It’s not about equal rights. It’s not about tradition. It’s not about choice. It’s about God!

People are afraid to talk about the real issue because it’s not politically correct, but let’s be realistic: It was God who outlawed homosexuality 3,000 years ago (actually before, but the Law of Moses was the first written record) and he hasn’t changed his mind!

The structure of marriage needs to be preserved because that’s the way God created it. (It wasn’t Adam and Eli in the Garden of Eden.) Those were the values on which this country was founded and which made it great.

Let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water! If you’re going to report on an issue, let’s deal with the bottom line (fire) and leave out the smokescreen.
