We are American citizens with a right and a duty to promote what we think is best for our country. Institutionalizing natural marriage in the law is not imposing Christianity on people by force, any more than institutionalizing respect for life and property in the law. Natural marriage is not a special invention of Christianity but the universal heritage of all humanity over all recorded history. Our neighbors desperately need it, just as much as they need the laws against murder and theft. Shame on us if we don't love our neighbors enough to fight for marriage.
