In Jacob Owen Darveau’s letter to the editor, Oct. 23, he says, “Ancient Babylonians and Egyptians, who we considered the first civilizations, accepted same-sex relations. Ancient Greeks and Romans — Socrates, Plato, Sappho, Pindar, Alexander the Great, Virgil, Catullus and Julius Caesar — not only accepted this behavior as a natural expression of the sexual instinct but praised it.”

Is it a coincidence that these same civilizations crumbled? Civilizations such as the Roman Empire decayed from the inside out.

We, as a state and a nation, have been blessed beyond measure by a God who has shown us great mercy. How can we show so little respect or righteous fear of him?

God is the one who invented marriage. In Ephesians 5:22-33, we are given a beautiful picture of marriage as a husband loving his wife as Christ loved the Church and gave His life for her; Christ as the bridegroom, the Church as his bride.

Vote no on Question 1 to preserve marriage between one man and one woman. “What God hath joined together, let no man put asunder” Mark 10:9.
