A simple request

Published: Wednesday, November 27, 2013 at 09:23 AM.

It is my fear that we will all succumb to the Zealots, the eagerly religious to steer the reins of this great nation into a country no longer guided by individual freedoms, whether you find them morally reprehensible or not, but rather guided by the scriptures. This is not what our Founding Fathers had in mind. Two men or two women, two adults should be free to marry if they so choose. This is the very essence of freedom and any who disagree are indeed the tyrants, not the other way around. 

So again, I ask you, please make the right decision and choose to take a stand. This will require no serious work on your part. Simply an agreement that all men are created equal and that freedom is determined by the moral code of your religion. 

Thank you for your time and attention.
