Can’t do away with sex when debating marriage
You cannot discuss marriage without mentioning one of its major components: sexual coupling. This aspect is conveniently ignored by those people who are in favor of “gay marriage” because, let’s face it, sex between men is revolting. The sexual union of two men produces, at best, internal disfigurement and, at worst, disease and even death. The sexual union of two women isn’t possible; therefore, the “marriage” of two women is a sterile joke. On the other hand, sex between a man and a woman often produces the miracle of life. So there you have it. One marriage produces nothing or causes bodily harm; the other, life. No starker contrast could be made, and yet we’re told that gay marriage should be on equal footing with traditional marriage. This is insanity and quite dangerous. A society that mocks its venerated rites must suffer the unintended and unforeseen consequences.

The TL edited her response, here is the full thing.
This is in response to a letter in Saturday’s paper written by Fran McMullen about same sex marriage. The word used in describing sex between two men was very offending to me, and I am sure to many others, in addition to the rest of the letter.
Gay men and women can make love to each other in a way which I see you can totally not understand. Of course they cannot create life, but they can produce offspring in other ways. Also, many gay couples have adopted or would like to adopt children that were produced by “sexual coupling” between a man and a woman but were not wanted by the man and woman who “sexually coupled”.
Do you realize that gay people do not choose to be gay? They are born that way. It’s a fact of life. If you did some research before condemning them you may have thought twice about writing this very prejudice and close-minded letter. They are people, just like you and me.
When I was in grade school there was a boy who was very feminine. We were children-5 and 6 years old. He played with dolls and ran like a girl. We made fun of him, not understanding that he was born this way. To this day I regret teasing him. He was, is and always will be gay because he was born that way. I wish someone explained this to me as a child. If we all understood, we would have graciously accepted him as he was. I know better know and I accept people for who they are. It’s called diversity.
Believe it or not there is someone in your family or a friend of yours that is gay. When you find out who, will you stone them to death because they don’t believe in your ideals?
Also, I’d like to know how your life is affected just because someone is gay and wants to be with the person they love. Exactly how does it destroy your personal lifestyle? Do you suffer in some way because people are gay? You breathe the same air as them and you’re still here, and it hasn’t turned you into a gay person, has it? It’s not contagious, nor is it a disease. It’s life. Learn to accept it.
We only have one life to live, and it’s short. Don’t you think that each individual should be able to spend it with someone they love, regardless of sexual orientation or race? Shouldn’t everyone be allowed to spend their life with someone they love without being looked down upon, condemned, beaten, ridiculed or having to hide their feelings? People should be allowed to be proud to show their true affections without being condemned for them or for who they are.
Sex between two men or two women or a man and a woman is not revolting if they truly love each other.
Just for the record, I am not gay. I am happily married to the love of my life. And I wish everyone could MARRY the love of their life, regardless of sexual orientation or race.
Look in the mirror, Fran, and tell me you like yourself. If you do, I’m glad I don’t know you. I have no desire to want to know you, and it’s your loss.
Learn to accept people for who they are. Don’t judge someone just because of their sexual orientation or race and you just may learn something and make all kinds of friends. Open your heart. Give it a try and you may be surprised. It feels good. Jesus loved everyone.
