LETTER: Disagreeing with Henley
Disagreeing with Henley
According to Webster, a bigot is “one obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his own church, party, belief or opinion.” All who hold a differing opinions are bigots.
We are entitled to rights as U.S. citizens. The Freedom of Religion was granted to us in the Bill of Rights. I am religious; a Christian. I am entitled to my beliefs, in equality with John Henley, but I have better reasoning for my beliefs. Homosexuality is wrong. “Marriage” of homosexuals is wrong. Let me explain, but keep in mind that in order to have a right, you must be responsible and fulfill your rights.
God made marriage to be between a man and a woman for the purpose of procreation. God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Mark or Eve and Linda.
I have a creditable source: the Holy Bible. It’s more than 2,000 years old, selling the most copies of any book. God told Adam and Eve in Genesis 1:28: “be fruitful and increase in number.”
Webster defines marriage as “1. the mutual relation of HUSBAND and WIFE (not husband and husband or wife and wife) 2. the institution where MEN and WOMEN are joined … for the purpose of FOUNDING and maintaining a family. Even Webster agrees.
Married people have the right to FOUND a family and procreate. How will a homosexually “married” couple use their right if they don’t posses the proper equipment to adequately procreate? A homosexually-married couple can’t fulfill the duty God set with marriage.
The state might issue you a “marriage license” but you will never be a married couple for the purpose of married couples; just a homosexual couple.
Are you a bigot? I am. We are all bigots if we are “intolerantly devoted” to our opinion or belief, so John Henley, sir, join me as a bigot.
