Gay marriage is wrong

Daniel Greenwood, in your Sunday Viewpoint, bases his recrimination of Amendment 3 on the usual, fundamentally erroneous assumption that gay relationships are somehow on the same plane as race, ethnicity and religion; that they are an officially recognized minority. The Supreme Court in the Texas case, which started this fiasco, stated simply that sodomy conducted in the "privacy" of one's home is legal. It did not grant official public recognition of homosexuals as a legitimate minority group. Some activist judges (and apparently some law professors) have moved that interpretation forward. Since the beginning of time, immoral behavior is immoral behavior. Loving our gay neighbors, family members and co-workers is the right thing to do, but condoning their behavior by making gay marriage a publicly acceptable practice is not.
