Letter to editor: Marriage amendment

November 10, 2004

Traditional marriage was a big winner across the country on Election Day -- earning impressive support at the ballot box.

All of the 11 states with constitutional amendments on marriage passed them -- by upwards of 60 or 70 percent of the vote in most cases. Hopefully, that sends a message to our senators and representatives in Washington that we want, and expect, them to similarly protect this sacred institution in the U.S. Constitution.

Sadly, though, the ballot box is no match for the judge's gavel in modern-day America. Don't be surprised if the next headline you read about this issue involves a state court ruling one of the amendments unconstitutional -- usurping the power rightly delegated to the people.

The only weapon to effectively battle such tyranny is another amendment -- to the U.S. Constitution.
