Court Ruling Is Wrong
July 19, 2003
World Herald Square, Omaha, NE 68102
The recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling that a Texas sodomy law is
unconstitutional is totally unacceptable. Those with the authority to make
decisions of that magnitude should be standing up for the principles this
country was founded on and not what a select few in the general public feel.
Justice Antonin Scalia hit the point well in saying that we are turning our
backs on family values and what this country was founded on and around—God.
This country and its Constitution were founded not on what a select few in the
general public thought but around religion and God.
I would be very proud to support a constitutional amendment that would ban
same-sex marriages. If same-sex couples want to get married, they should go to
Canada and stay there. This country has turned its back on God and the Bible
for way too long.
