Honorable Mr. Obama,
Today it is being announced throughout media outlets that your evolution concerning marriage equality for gays has come to an end. You have officially endorsed what is commonly called “gay marriage”. I take exception to the term, nonetheless for clarity in this correspondence I use it.
The Bible teaches, “Righteousness exalts a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34). To redefine marriage or the basis of family life in a context other than husband (man) and wife (woman) is to undermine what is a sacred institution, created and ordained by God. How can two men or two women naturally procreate? Doesn’t that give hint to God’s bigger plans for the family and planet Earth?
The idea that civil unions for gays do not go far enough flies in the face of reason. If rights are sought, let us dole out rights. This is not about rights. Civil unions give rights! This is about nationalizing an agenda. In a pluralistic society all persons should have human rights, but not the right to moral redefinition.
Mr. President, respectfully, regardless of your devolution, the Word of God has not evolved. God’s idea is still the best idea; one man, one woman, one lifetime. Marriage as defined by Christians must remain between a man and a woman.
