Time to get priorities straight


Greensburg Daily News

---- — To the editor:

I would like to make some comments on the gay marriage law.

The homosexual bit was researched for 50 years worldwide and this goes back to B.C. times.

They know that in every 1,000 births worldwide, five will be a girl’s gene in a boy’s body or a boy’s gene in a girl’s body, which happens in nature all the time. But consider all of the illnesses that are passed down in families for even thousands of years.

But that is fact; now let’s talk about the gay marriage bit. Since when do we legislate on sexual preference? That is between two people. How many people would want their sexual preferences brought out into the light of day?

Where did inalienable rights go out of our laws?

Forty-one percent of the rapes are all that’s reported. Fifty-nine percent of the rapists are still out there, we have homes for battered women all over the state, children are molested all the time and we are trying to pass laws to stop gay marriage.

What does that say about our priorities?

There is an old saying, “Clean up your own backyard before you start on someone else’s.”
