No to gay marriage in West Virginia

— — West Virginia voters, beware! To date, 17 states have voted and approved same sex marriage and proponents will not rest until all America falls under their sectarian spell. Since 2004 when Massachusetts became the first state to legislate in favor of gay marriage, voters are bending over backwards to show their tolerance for homosexuals’ right to be married, a right they believe is in line with “liberty and freedom for all.”

I disagree and fervently pray many will join me when this issue reaches the polls here in our God-fearing West Virginia. So far we are quite high on the list of high-ranking obesity and rampant diabetes. Let’s not add West Virginia to the stupidity list.

Many have turned their backs on the Founding Fathers who built this nation on Judeo-Christian moral precepts. They choose instead to support all things politically correct. Society has become the dominant voice that determines  what is right and what is wrong. The Roe vs. Wade decision gave approval to the murder of millions of unborn babies. Washington’s and Colorado’s marijuana laws say yes to recreational pot, a move that will be followed lemming-like by many of the other states. Don’t join the herd of  followers. Vote against anything that this nation will in time regret. Don’t open the legal door that can lead to more dangerous false freedoms.

Lets not play the “monkey-see-monkey-do” game with the future of America. Say no to gay marriage.
