We can't pick and choose the country's fundamentals



To the editor:


I wish to comment on the recent article on same-sex marriage. Although I am a Christian and believe in marriage between a man and a woman, I feel due to the government's turn of opinion against religion in the last 50 years or so, they have no right to rule against same-sex marriage.

They took prayer or any mention of God out of our schools, they tell us we cannot erect crosses on public land, we cannot display The Ten Commandments in our courthouses due to the politically correct theory of "separation of church and state." But then they tell us that they are upholding a biblical statement that marriage is only for heterosexuals. In my opinion, if you are so afraid of God being a part of our laws, protecting our morals, infringing on our rights as citizens, then you are all hypocrites for using one of God's laws to ban same-sex marriage.

Either put religion back, or suffer the consequences of not having him in our justice system, which is: No laws can be based on biblical theory. Yes, this will create anarchy because laws were made to uphold morals and standards, according to what our founding Christian fathers intended for this country. But you can't pick and choose when you decide to eliminate what this country was based on.
