I am a Catholic who has been married for 41 years, and who also believes that marriage should be between one man and one woman.

However, I am voting no on the marriage amendment because the vast majority of our population, those of us who are straight, should not be able to vote to impact the lives of a minority group.

If this had happened 100 years ago, women would not have obtained the right to vote; 50 years ago, the civil rights movement would not have happened. This is a dangerous precedent, and if it passes, what is next? Scary...think about it.
