LETTERS: Who's next in line for marriage rights?

Who’s next in linefor marriage rights?

So you are open-minded to the idea of homosexual marriage? Prepare to open your mind a bit more.

Before you pat yourself on the back for being more tolerant than your forefathers, more enlightened than your great-grandparents and wiser than the Bible, you might want to consider the long line of endless perversions waiting in excited anticipation for the courts to decide if homosexual marriage will be legalized in Indiana. After all, if a person’s sexual perversion — or for the politically correct, sexual preference — cannot be discriminated against, then understand, there is a multitude of perversions waiting in line. All of these “preferences” are going to eventually demand to be legalized, embraced and tolerated as normal.

A man wakes up one day and decides he is really a woman trapped in a man’s body. He is more comfortable using the women’s bathroom at your hometown restaurant or the girls’ dressing room at your local hometown swimming pool. Who are you to discriminate? Don’t worry, your 9-year-old daughter will be just fine showering beside him. Remember, you are open-minded.

A man wants to add a gay partner to his traditional marriage. Who are we to deny him his rights? A woman wants a wife and three husbands. Sure, why not? Maybe she was born that way. Marry your sister? OK, I mean, who are we to judge?

Bottom line? You cannot legally sanction one level of perversion and then deny the same rights to the next. And there is a long line of “next.”

Gov’t shouldn’t be spying on Americans

Last Friday, a coalition of 21 organizations from across the political spectrum launched StandAgainstSpying.org, an interactive website that grades members of Congress on what they have done — or, often, not done — to rein in the National Security Agency (NSA). Susan Brooks, Indiana’s 5th Congressional representative, received a grade of “F” from StandAgainstSpying.org because of her support to increase funding for the NSA!
