S. Touchette: Put an end to this now

  • I do not think that the public should be voting on the same-sex marriage issue again.

    Most of the people believe the Bible is word of God, but then they believe that word only when it suits them. It is stated in Psalms 24:3-5, "Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His Holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive blessing from the Lord, ..." To me that should speak for itself.

    For those Christians who call themselves Christians and not follow the Bible as the word of God, that is law, and the law states that man should marry woman and woman should marry man. Many know that it is in the Bible.

    I am also concerned about lawsuits. The minister may be covered for not doing the ceremony but what about the others, such as the person handling the flowers, the DJ, hall officials, etc.? There is nothing happening to them now because gay marriage is against the law. If Question 1 passes, I expect lawsuits will triple.

    I will not marry those of the same sex. As it is, chaplains on military bases will be reassigned if they do not marry couples of the same sex.

    If voters do not put an end to this now, when will it stop?

    Scott Touchette, Leeds
