Standing, Marching and Praying for Marriage

Wedding_Rings_and_InvitationThe issue of homosexuality is deeply personal, for many families. Such is the case for Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio), who recently announced he has changed his mind on how marriage should be defined.  It seems his son struggles with same-sex attractions and he felt he could no longer exclusively support traditional, natural marriage.

Obviously, as parents, we love our children unconditionally, but that does not mean unconditional support for legislation that is both harmful to them and harmful to society. A painful, personal experience does not change how unnatural and unhealthy the homosexual lifestyle is. Nor does it suddenly invalidate the original purpose or meaning of marriage, which is to recognize biological realities and promote responsible procreation.

As a Senator, Rob Portman has an obligation to his constituents to pursue public policy rooted in the well-being of all children. Portman’s announcement concluded by saying he continues to believe that “change should come about through the democratic process in the states. Judicial intervention from Washington would circumvent that process… and risk deepening divisions rather than resolving them.”

Natural marriage is still the best government policy. Let’s us personally commit to human compassion and civility to all, while publicly continuing to stand, march and pray for  natural marriage and traditional families!
