Mainer: Legalizing Gay Marriage Would Undermine a Fundamental Institution


Christopher Ritter writes in theĀ Portland Press Herald:

"...The destruction of even as important a word as "marriage" does not mean necessarily that we would arrive in the world of Orwell's Big Brother. There is always the hope that decency and common sense somehow will prevail. But none of us will know in our lifetimes what the full effects of this change would be.

Overturning 20 centuries of wisdom demands more thought and respect than the proponents of this law have given us. Our state and our children deserve better.

What to do is simple. It is not a poll or a focus group or a high-powered advertising campaign that will decide this question. We will all have a chance to step into a voting booth with no one else present, and to vote for what we think is right."
