What’s next, a gay television channel?


To the editor:

A strong voice against the proliferation of gay marriage rights is needed. The states of Washington and Maryland have passed into law the rights of marriage to gay and lesbian citizens. That makes it eight of these United States that have done so to date.

Washingtonians already had laws permitting “domestic partnerships,” but that language (to quote Rep. Jamie Pedersen) “is a pale and inadequate substitution for marriage.” It had to be made really offensive to most in this country who believe that it is contrary to common sense and a long-held definition of a union.

We have gone full circle. First, it was the mistake of permitting gay adoptions. Now we have redefined marriage for America, all in the guise of providing protection of the civil rights of gay and lesbian couples. We even have a federal appeals court in California ruling against a referendum that banned gay marriage in that state. We have rewritten our dictionaries in the wake of this evolution of thought and the liberal agenda. And for what purpose?

I doubt that it is related to control of world population. It feeds into the frenzy of other minority groups, such as the atheists, to change society as we know it. The revenge of the ’60s is in full swing and the progressives are slowly legislating morality to their liking. God’s churches and the Constitution are under constant attack. Watch for the advent of a gay-life cable channel.
