Thank you Annabel Girard for your fine article in the Oct. 10 Advocate explaining the amendment proposal on the subject of non-traditional unions. You presented the information and arguments in a dispassionate manner that should cause everyone to pause and consider the consequences of their vote on this matter.
She raised many of the points I feel must be considered by all who may have already arrived at a conclusion on this question. For example, why are we so concerned about traditional marriage when we ignore the ever-increasing divorce rate? Have you ever read what Jesus said about that subject?
I will not attempt to repeat all of the arguments and questions Annabel raised, but I would not discuss this issue with anyone who had not read that column. Too often, on such hot button issues, people cite the authority they select to support their opinion and never go beyond that point. Annabel examined all of the arguments raised by many who support the amendment proposal but who fail to consider the consequences if it is passed.
