No same sex marriage

To the Editor,
   This last week I received three pieces of mail about the need to change the law concerning lesbian and homosexuals' desire to be married. And the television media had a piece about the military okaying open gayness among their members.
   My question is, Is that a good lifestyle to promote? What does history tell us? Does the lesbian/homosexual lifestyle degrade human dignity and health or does it uplift it? What are the facts?
   Fact, AIDS is a deadly disease that is greatly increased in homosexual activity. Check the facts at "The Health Risks of Gay Sex" and the Center for Disease Control.
   Legitimizing lesbian and homosexual marriage is a bad idea. It destroys lives and societies. Marriage is a foundation force that holds our society together.
   Vote no on legalizing same sex marriage.
