While the President has now flip-flopped by supporting gay marriage, most believe gay sex and marriage conflict with traditional Judeo-Christian values. That’s why supporters, who claim 60% approval, are wrong, know it and always oppose public referendums on the issue.
Because gay sex remains the primary cause of HIV/Aids in the United States and World-wide, advocates also refuse to discuss corresponding health implications. Sadly, sexually transmitted disease is responsible for death and millions in health care costs each year. Encouraging same sex relationship will only exacerbate the problem.
If two men or two women want to live together its strictly their own business. Why must the majority be required by law to sanction it as normal or comparable to traditional marriage? This is exactly why 30 States have already declared true marriage is between one man and one woman.
While we must strictly enforce all laws against discrimination, compelling the majority to condone and accept abnormal and perverted lifestyles as worthy of endorsement or acceptance violates their freedom of expression. Gov. Christie is absolutely right. New Jersey should conduct a State-wide referendum asking whether marriage should be defined in our State’s Constitution as a union between one man and one woman.
Hopefully, religious organizations, enlightened politicians, those of all political persuasions, local media and our Fourth Estate can all support a public ballot on this issue. It would express our free expression of conscience and morality on this important social question.
