Don’t skip the question

To the Editor:

I love living in Minnesota and plan to retire here. However, there is one really quirky thing about voting here. If I skip a “yes” or “no” question on the ballot, it counts as a “no” vote. Oh, my.

God created marriage to be between one man and one woman. To protect marriage as such, it’s going to be very important to vote “Yes” on the issue on Nov. 6. If you vote on nothing else, please vote “Yes” for marriage. God designed marriage and no one has the authority to redefine it. Even common sense tells us that children thrive best in a home with a mother and a father.

Traditional man-woman marriage has passed with solid majorities in 31 states so far. Let’s not let Minnesota be the first to go astray. Some argue that we should not “limit” the “right” to get married, but marriage is already limited. You can’t marry a close relative. You can’t marry someone who is already married. You can’t marry a 12-year-old, and you can’t marry more than one person. And marriage is not a right any more than getting a driver’s license is a right.

Please vote “Yes” for marriage. — Phil Ronzheimer, Little Falls
