Friday, Sept. 14, 2007 | As a practicing Roman Catholic, I am appalled to read in Same-Sex Vote Revisited, that “the City Council will revote on a proposal to write a “friend of the court” brief supporting same-sex marriage on Tuesday. The idea fell one vote short Sept. 4, but it is expected to pass after Councilwoman Donna Frye said she would vote yes after initially opposing it.
Perverting God-instituted marriage has become socially fashionable for the morally deficient masses. The biological and psychological bonds of natural marriage are being severely challenged by widespread fornication, adultery and homosexual conduct. Such flagrant sexual immorality has been ripping the vital fabric of society to shreds since the advent of the birth control pill in 1950’s. This pill has opened Pandora’s Box, unleashing such twisted darkness as cannot be matched even by the transvestite marriage of Roman Emperor Nero. It marks the rapid decline and fall of the American Empire when our own President Clinton in the Oval Office could not be trusted to honor marital integrity. Such moral perversion undermines the ethical integrity of all peoples, corrupting trust in the business of everyday affairs, especially in politics where statesmanship has yielded to political sycophancy, so evident when our most ‘honorable’ council members vie with one another for visibility at homosexual parades; when our heroic firemen are forced to attend gay and lesbian parades for political correctness and lavender diversity. Do you, for one minute, think a private, personal act of immorality does not damage society at large in some mysterious but profound manner? When earthquakes and hurricanes and pandemics strike at large populations, do you really believe society’s accumulative global misconduct has no part in these events? When the patriarch Abraham asked God if one morally just man would prevent the destruction of Sodom, God’s answer was yes. If we love America and the San Diego we call home, this should be our behavioral response as well — lest something worse befall us overnight when we least expect it.
