Letter: Against same-sex marriage
To the Editor:
Towards the end of October, the Illinois House may vote on a truly regressive piece of legislation: a bill that would legalize homosexual "marriage."
The ancient and primitive Greeks and Romans crassly valued homosexual relations. But eventually the people wised up and realized that was a mistake, and homosexual activity was again deemed unethical and was basically driven underground.
Now many Democrats and even some Republicans are trying to take us back thousands of years to more primitive and decadent times, despite the fact that thinking people have known for centuries that homosexual activity is immoral and a bad legal precedent.
What an upside-down world, where we are supposed to cater to the immoral!
He who has eyes to see, let them see. The "logic" of heterophobic homosexuals is rapidly leading this society down a slippery slope to a more and more aberrant, disordered and irrational society.
Anyone who thinks this is progress is deluding him/herself. Rome didn't fall in a day. But it did fall.
You may want to ask your state representative to vote against this ill-considered bill.
