Urge legislators to ban same-sex marriage

April 11, 2004

Dear Editor:

While our minds are fixed on basketball games, spring breaks and proms, I fear a most important issue in Kentucky is passing by our eyes and thereby is being completely ignored.

It is the original Senate Bill 245, which says "Only a marriage between one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in Kentucky. A legal status identical or substantially similar to that of a marriage for unmarried individuals shall not be valid or recognized as a marriage."

God created the man and the woman in His image (Gen. 2:27) with physical and emotional needs that only each of them could meet for each other. Their union was meant to be a strong, enduring bond bound together by an unconditional commitment, love and acceptance. No other human relationship (not even of a parent for a child) is to supersede the bond between husband and wife. Such a God-planned relationship is about to be broken in our beloved state.


Through the years, other issues have come to our attention, and we have done little or nothing to stop them from becoming law in our land: no prayer in schools, no display of the Ten Commandments in public places, abortions, and now same-sex marriage is about to be voted on in Frankfort. Christians must take action immediately.

Some actions could include:

1. Call the Capitol, phone number 1-800-372-7181, Monday morning and leave the message that the original Senate Bill 245 should be passed.

2. Talk about the seriousness of this issue with your pastor, church staff and friends to encourage them to contact their legislators to vote for the original Senate Bill 245.

3. E-mail legislators Jim Callahan, Rocky Adkins and Jody Richards at

4. Pray and believe the original Senate Bill 245 will pass.
