Marriage amendment


The marriage amendment is puzzling to me.

I am a Christian and I’m puzzled. I have a very hard time accepting that Jesus Christ would deal with the marriage issue in this way. He represents being inclusive, not exclusive.

I am a Republican and I’m puzzled. The Republican Party says it stands for less government yet this amendment is more government. Government can’t be smaller and bigger at the same time. It’s using our constitution to take away freedoms, not ensure them.
