In response to the moral posturing of Mason Fitch (in Wednesday’s letter), I wonder just how committed he is to the idea of marriage equality. Will he passionately defend equality for those who wish to marry their brother or sister? Does marriage equality extend to marriage of an adult and a child? What about marrying more than one man or woman? The same logic that allows for same-sex marriage also allows for incestuous, polygamous and child marriage.
When you embrace moral relativism, be prepared to embrace it fully. Just as homosexuals have openly demanded public affirmation of their lifestyle, compelled by law, these other fringe groups can do the same.
My opinion is that one’s sexual preferences should be kept in the privacy of their bedroom and not shoved down the public’s throat. When those like Fitch invite me into their bedroom, I feel compelled to respond. I am sick to death of the strident demand for validation of the homosexual lifestyle. Why should I validate that which I consider an abomination? I will only support pro-life candidates who believe in the one-man, one-woman definition of marriage.
I would point out that there are other issues that define Obama and his presidency. There are many, many reasons he should not be re-elected.
