Letter; Vote 'yes' on marriage

I am reminded of a song that I learned as a little child called "The Wise Man and the Foolish Man." The wise man built his house upon the rock and the foolish man built his house upon the sand. You know the end results of such construction. On what foundation are you building your house?

Before now, no society in the history of the world has ever defined marriage as between people of the same sex. With no precedent to look to, many citizens are thinking it is not necessary to protect marriage as between one man and one woman.

"Pretending that marriage can be for people of the same sex will send ripple effects of dysfunction and destruction in every direction," wrote John Piper in "Let Marriage be Held in Honor."

To say same-sex marriage is OK would be saying motherhood and fatherhood are of no benefit to society. Two men adopting children cannot provide motherhood, nor can two women raising children provide fatherhood.

There is hope for anyone who repents as we read in First Chronicles. Are the churches going the way of pragmatism or are they expounding on the whole counsel of God? Are we, as parents, building on the solid rock?
