Dear Fellow Wyomingites,
Our U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights doesn’t “cover” the institution of marriage, just the right to follow our chosen faiths without intervention from the government. Forcing people to accept what they consider “unacceptable” in their moral code is what is unconstitutional.
Homosexuals can function without prejudice in our country by their chosen method of hedonistic lifestyle and not be breaking any law. Most of the people in this country do not support the redefinition of traditional church marriage which is for the procreation and rearing of children. This feat cannot be accomplished naturally by homosexual couples.
The biggest rift is that children should not be subjected to this abnormal lifestyle, nor should it be taught in our schools as 'normal.' It is neither natural nor normal. It is a choice. I do not accept it as anything other than that. Just because someone has an urge to do something, it is not to be acceptable as natural or normal. If that is the case, you will open up the 'natural' urges of pedophiles, bestiality, child rape, porn, alcohol abuse, drug abuse, self mutilation, murder, torture and other self destructive 'urges' as 'normal.' These are urges to be resisted because they are harmful, unnatural, and cause harm in our societies. We are a fallen and imperfect race of man trying to strive for ‘goodness.’ Self control and discipline are a needed to excel in this world.
You need to look down the course of where this will lead. Fifty years ago we had in our society people who thought it through and choose wisely, not to go down this road. Because we no longer allow critical thinking to be taught in our educational system, our youth have grown to become self centered, and a please-me-now generation. They do not think beyond tomorrow; they do not think of the effects on others, nor do they investigate and come to conclusions after thoughtful consideration. Today our youth and young adults are 'told' what to think by radicals whose only goal is to develop a generation totally dependent upon a tyrannical government and our youth and young adults with a few exceptions accept this as fact. Why else would the national education system be so afraid of the home schooled and of superintendents who are 'voted' in by the people.
