Laura Bush

Sky Gilbar, Associated Press

I find it rather disturbing that so-called conservative people like former first lady Laura Bush and Elisabeth Hasselbeck, co-host of ABC's "The View," have come out in support of same-sex marriage. Their position demonstrates the decaying depth to which Americans have fallen. Marriage between one man and one woman is not just any union between persons; it has unique and inalienable characteristics that make it the foundation of the family and of society.

Our government, in particular, has a duty to protect marriage between a man and a woman. It also has a duty to denounce same-sex couples because they undermine and destroy society and the family. Clearly Bush and Hasselbeck have confused love with lust — a common mistake made among the rich and famous.
