I, very strongly, disagree with most all the comments written
by Robert Freedland. Please, read his entire letter first and
then read mine. (I'm not going to quote everything that he wrote
for my letter.)
I interpreted from Freedland s letter that much of society s
ills, not just the same-sex issue, are a result of the conservatives,
republicans, or religious folk within our society. (He seemed
to lump all of these people into one group.)
LIKE IT OR NOT, MORALS ARE THE VERY FOUNDATION THAT SUPPORT ANY
SOCIETY. AS THOSE MORALS DECAY, SO WILL A SOCIETY!!
Robert states, In Wisconsin this November, as has been and shall
be in other states, are efforts to limit marriage to just "one
man and one woman". In our state, this will also make civil
unions illegal. Just yesterday the highest court in the State
of New Jersey stated that same-sex families deserve equal protection
under the law. Is this really the result of "activist judges"
or is the justice system simply trying to be fair to every American?
Well, using this same philosophy/logic, let's be fair to every
American and approve (among other things) PLURAL MARRIAGE and
BEASTIALITY (sex with or union of man and animal). Don't tell
me you don't approve! "The glue that holds these 'unions'
together is not sin but love." We may get sick to our stomach
thinking about it, but isn t this another non-traditional household?
Well, join the club, I also get sick to my stomach when thinking
about same-sex unions. [It wasn t too long ago that same-sex
unions could and would have never been considered as a civil
union. Why not look to our future? Using this logic, we'll soon
be confronting the EQUAL RIGHTS of those practicing in beastiality.]
Let s also accept all these other so-called unions (not just
same-sex). Let's ACCEPT them/this in the name of EQUALITY, LOVE,
and SOCIETAL PROGRESS! NOT!! EVER!!
He also placed the responsibility for many of our other societal
problems on one party of our government. Government is, in reality,
responsible for many of our problems, or lack of cures. However,
don t just blame one party. There have been a lot of government
officials from all parties get us to where we are today!!
Thanks for reading and considering the gravity of our current
national situation. Vote wisely. America needs you now more than
ever!! Fight for what is right, and fight for YOUR RIGHT to live
in a society as free as possible from moral decay.
