Sanctity of Marriage in Illinois Under Attack
The Trib and SunTimes say that the Illinois Senate is planning to vote on granting two men and two women the right to "marry". If it passes, and then passes the Illinois House, the governor said he will sign it into law. This law is immoral, vehemently anti-Torah, and just plain idiotic.
Why do I care? Shouldn't we let people live as they choose? Why must government intrude on people's rights?
I'm all for government not intruding on people's rights. And that is precisely why I am against this bill.
You see, I have a right to live in a moral society and I have a right to live in a safe society. Society is immoral enough, we need to go the extra step and legislate immorality? The moment immorality becomes law, bad things start to happen. It then becomes unsafe, לא עלינו.
May Hashem show the elected officials of Illinois the fallacy of the bill and may it not see the light of day on the governor's desk.
