Marriage amendment

I am answering a recent letter to the editor concerning the marriage amendment. It is a mystery to me why anyone would compare wearing red or not eating meat to the centuries-old tradition of marriage being a covenant between a man and a woman.

This marriage idea is not something dreamed up in the last 20 years as an anti-gay strategy. For thousands of years marriage has been defined and practiced as a binding together of one man and one woman.
