The preamble to the Washington Constitution reads: “We the people of Washington State, grateful to the Supreme Ruler of the Universe for our liberties, do ordain this Constitution.

It is my observation that the Supreme Ruler of the Universe arranged things such that only a man and a woman have the ability to populate the earth. Perhaps he is telling us something regarding marriage.

Thirty-two states have allowed their citizenry to vote on this issue, and all 32 have declared by popular majority that marriage should remain a union between one man and one woman.

Seems the Supreme Ruler of the Universe, along with We the People of the United States, should add Washington to the list of those who think traditional marriage makes for a more perfect union.
