Sometimes it takes a while for hateful messages to soak in. I think this may be the result of “putting on the armor of God” to wage political battle against an ideology bent on destroying our very existence. Last night, David asked me to describe the two anti-marriage letters in Leesburg Today. I remembered Robert H. Follett’s response to David’s letter, but could not remember the content of the second letter from Steve Ford of Delgaudio’s Sterling. Mr. Ford’s letter may be an Amendment #1 proponent’s outer limit for public expression of anti-gay sentiment.
If we need to legally restate the definition of marriage in order to protect vulnerable children from adult predators, then I’m all for it. And, I’d hope all Virginians would be.
I thought the anti-marriage crowd was “protecting children” from couples who must “procure” them [sic] because they can’t biologically reproduce, or from families who would “consciously deny a child a mother or a father”. Lord knows how “adult predator” rounds out the picture. I don’t think Mr. Ford is a bigot or a homophobe. He just needs help.
