Three cheers for Lonnie Napier! He is to be congratulated for speaking up on same-sex marriages - an issue that was sure to draw fire. Yes, there are other issues that need attention, but what good is it to fix the building if the foundations are crumbling?
How can anyone be so blind as to not see where this same-sex marriage issue is going? For thousands of years, marriage has meant union between a man and a woman. (Some men have had more than one wife, but this was not condoned by the majority.) Divorce used to be frowned upon; then more and more people decided they had a "right" to be happy and they scrapped their wedding vows. This has led to untold broken homes, fractured families, troubled children, confused grownups, etc. Marriage is not as sacred as it used to be.
Life also is no longer considered sacred. First it became legal to kill our babies, then the old, unproductive folks. Now drive-by shootings, school shootings and shopping center shootings are increasing in frequency. If a woman's "right" to do what she wants with her body leads to this lack of respect for life, what can same-sex unions lead to? No longer confined to the sanctity of marriage, sex becomes rampant between men and children, men and animals and all manner of perversions. It has happened in the past.
