Letter: Let’s defend traditional marriage

Published: Friday, Jan. 18, 2013 5:30 a.m. CST

To the Editor:

Lawmakers cannot operate in a spiritual vacuum. Our country and Constitution were based on a very firmly defined set of Judeo-Christian precepts that were meant to direct our legislative decisions. It’s imperative that Springfield members turn to their spiritual roots as part of their decision-making process. If they do so, I think they will find that the definition of marriage is not negotiable. Marriage is between a man and a woman. Let’s encourage Springfield to stand up for traditional marriage.
