I am writing regarding your recent misguided November 2007 editorial entitled “Rainbow Advisors.”
While I applaud and support the idea that planning cannot be a “one-size-fits-all” proposition, I was dumbfounded to read that you and your magazine now accept, and promote, the gay and lesbian agenda!
The union of same sex couples is not a civil rights issue, but a moral issue. Since the beginning of humankind, the union of two people has consisted of one man and one woman. As you correctly point out, our society, laws, customs, and protections are built upon the institution of marriage. What is wrong with that? Because a minority of the world’s population choose to live in a perverse manner does not entitle them to a special set of “rights.”
If you support “marriage rights” for gay and lesbian couples, do those same “rights” apply to relationships involving one man with multiple women or one woman with multiple men? Would you argue that polygamists have “marriage rights” What about all the other “charming, refreshing and smart” people who choose non-conventional (one man-one woman) relationships? “Charming, refreshing and smart,” do not make right.
You state that “denying that right to a significant portion of the citizenry is plain wrong.” The only thing wrong is your records. Please delete my name from your mailing list.
Let’s see how your magazine and its advertisers flourish by focusing on serving a minority of the population.
