Don't opponents of same-sex marriage have rights, too?

February 22, 2011

Before it's too late, It's time for those of us who oppose the use of the word "marriage" for same-sex unions to have our say.

Far be it from me to tell other people how to live their lives, and I certainly don't oppose those who live with and love others of the same sex having the same legal rights as anyone else.

But I do oppose changing the concept of "marriage" being reserved for a man and a woman. Call it a "union" or something else. But marriage has always been between a man and a woman, and I don't think that we should be forced to change our concept of marriage. Don't we have some rights too?
