To the editor:
I was very much encouraged by the Sept 18 letter written to Catholics of New Ulm Diocese, urging us to vote 'Yes' on Nov. 6 in regard to the Minnesota Marriage Protection Amendment. The amendment states: "Only a union of one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in Minnesota"
This is just common sense stuff, but still, it's so good to see a pastor that is willing to take a public stand on this "hot-button" issue.
Besides the bishop's letter, you can also get the secular and non-Catholic perspective by going to Ex-gaytruth.com and Narth.com to find out why homosexuals are not "born that way." It is just a behavioral pattern that was acquired after being born, even if they do not remember having acquired it. So please, for the sake of our nation, and the definition of marriage as the union of one man and one woman: vote YES.
