This was a letter to the editor in my local paper. The writer of the letter was responding to an editorial article that talked about New York legalizing gay marriage and that this was just a matter of time for the rest of the country to come on board.
""Same-sex marriage" is an oxymoron. I look forward to the REDACTED providing equal coverage of an opinion regarding the importance of preserving marriage between a man and a woman and the fact that science cannot provide irrefutable evidence of a gay gene or gay DNA. If people of the same sex choose to commit to a civil union, that is their business, but it does not justify government involvement of an institution that it did not create and should not redefine.
Hopefully, our society will continue to embrace and preserve the traditional marriage between a man and a woman as the cornerstone of our society intended for procreation and the education of offspring.
This initially just made me mad but then I shift back to sadness because they are proponents of individual freedom, yet don't want to let a subset of people be who they want to be.
