Why do we have marriage laws?

-- So the government can have another tax.
-- To protect children. If it wasn't for children there would be no marriages.

The Illinois General Assembly is going to pass same-sex marriage in January.

Why?

To please a very loud minority (less than 2 percent).

Every Illinois lawmaker should go to the Ruth Institute website to read and download "77 Non-religious Reasons to Support Man/Woman Marriage."
Same-sex marriage will not enhance morality in the state. It will only make some people feel that their perverted life style is normal.

This is a case of money talks, and the squeaky wheel gets the grease.
I think the General Assembly could spend its time a lot more productively by getting the state's financial house in order.

Before you put words in my mouth or read something into this letter that I didn't say, I do not hate homosexuals!

I just go by the moral guide that this country was founded on, the Holy Bible.
