Your ‘Yes’ Vote Will Defend the Sacred
I fear that in this world today, we have lost the ideal of the sacredness of certain institutions. One of these institutions has been around for several millennia, and has served as the bedrock of civilized culture. This institution is traditional marriage.
Marriage has been attacked since God ordained it in the Garden of Eden. The nature of mankind is to blame for its current condition. Jesus spoke of divorce in the New Testament and said that it was allowed only under instances of adultery, and it was permitted because of the hardness of our hearts.
It is true that there have been poor examples of what marriage looks like, and yet there have also been wonderful examples of what marriage ought to be.
Traditional marriage is in sad shape today. Marriage is mocked when husband and wife cheat on one another and when we leave the original intent of what marriage was intended for.
A redefinition of marriage will not fix marriage. Homosexual marriage will be eventually mocked and is not the solution.
Our problems are not health benefits, or the right to raise children, or even the right to marry whom we love. None of which are good excuses, nor rights in and of themselves.
Our problem is the hardness of our hearts and the fact that there is nothing sacred left in our lives. Marriage is a holy and sacred institution, not a contract.
I will vote for Amendment One on May 8 to defend the sacred.
