Trying To Legislate Morality – The “Marriage Protection” Amendment

Usually, the positions of the American Family Association are pretty close to mine. However, I’m not so sure about this “Marriage Protection” Amendment. I don’t think we can legislate morality; this law will no more discourage homosexuality than it will actually protect marriage which is suffering from a staggering divorce rate. In short, this is a massive legislative waste of time. But, I can see why this is happening. When the Church defaults in any area of its responsibility, whether it be caring for the poor or on moral issues, people look to the government and attempt to put square pegs into round holes. I’m not coming out for or against this constitutional amendment, other than to say it is a big waste of time.

Here is what the American Family Association had to say:

Senate To Vote On Homosexual Marriage Ban In Early March

Action Needed Today! Help Send U.S. Senate One Million Letters Supporting Marriage Protection Amendment
Dear Brad,

The U.S. Senate will vote on the Marriage Protection Amendment (MPA) in early March. This constitutional amendment will make marriage between one man and one woman the only legal marriage.

Your help is needed in sending one million emails to the Senate in support of the MPA.

Senators who vote against the MPA, or support a filibuster to avoid a vote on the MPA, are supporting homosexual marriage.

ACTION NEEDED TODAY! Those favoring homosexual marriage are already contacting their Senators urging defeat of the MPA.

Time is short! Please send your letters today! Ask members of your Sunday School class and church to send an email in support of the MPA. Ask your pastor to put an announcement in the church bulletin and newsletter.
