Dear friend of KHCS,
You are no doubt aware of the
controversy regarding “gay marriage.”
Now, I believe “gay marriage” makes
about as much sense as “dehydrated water.”
Homosexuals argue that are not being
treated equally under the law. You hear them decry their lack of “rights”
to medical decisions, inheritance, insurance, etc.
But, anyone can (and should) have a
Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care, which names another party to
make health care decisions for them if they become incapacitated.
Similarly, they can make out their will
to leave an inheritance to anyone
─ even their
cat! And of course anybody, homosexual or not, can decide who should be
the beneficiary of their life insurance policy. It is not necessary to be
married to do any of these.
But I have an even deeper concern than
homosexual “marriage” ─
and that’s the anarchy that has sprung up around this issue. Since when
does a mayor have the legal right to decide what is and is not
constitutional? As one commentator pointed out, suppose a pro-life mayor
decided to ban abortions to protect the constitutional rights of the
pre-born. Does he have the authority to do that?
Some people believe that drivers
licenses and vehicle registrations are unconstitutional infringements on
their right to travel. Why can’t they just drive without these documents?
And if everyone is supposed to be
treated equally, then why isn’t the Americans with Disabilities Act
unconstitutional? Why should some people get preferential parking
places? But of course that argument is absurd.
That’s why I was glad to hear President
Bush declare his support for the Federal Marriage Amendment (H.J.R. 56 and
S.J.R. 26). In his State of the Union Address in January, the President
affirmed his support for the Defense Of Marriage Act, Public Law 104-199,
which was signed into law by President Clinton seven years ago. But Bush
added, “If judges insist on forcing their arbitrary will upon the people,
the only alternative left to the people would be the constitutional
process. Our nation must defend the sanctity of marriage.”
The subsequent anarchy in San Francisco
and elsewhere has shown that DOMA and California’s Prop. 22 are clearly
Whatever your position on homosexual
“marriage,” I hope you will agree that this issue needs to be decided
through the legal process, not by mayors and others who ignore existing
law just because they don’t think it’s “fair.”
Well, to make a sharp turn here, I’d
like to ask ─ is
it fair for a small percentage of our listeners to be responsible
for the financial support that keeps KHCS on the air?
