Regarding the federal Defense of Marriage Act:

Before marriage can be intelligently discussed, wouldn’t it be a good idea to define it? What is marriage?

Traditionally, it has been a sacred union between one man and one woman. It is the biblical basis of the family structure, in which children are conceived, loved, nourished and raised to adulthood.

Many people in our community want to change that tradition, but change it to what? So one man can marry one man, or can one man marry many men? Can a man take a child bride as happens in many countries? Can a woman?

Who dare says no? Don’t they have equal rights to be happy? Why have any laws at all and instead just let everyone do whatever they want?

Chaos, you say? Well, duh.
