I sent letters to my senators today. Well, actually, it was the same letter sent to both. I am praying that I spelled everything correctly. We know how bad my spelling can be.
Hello Ms Boxer/Feinstein,
I scanned your most recent press releases before contacting you so that I could discover your stance on the proposed Constitutional amendment regarding marriage in the United States. Since I found none, I would like to express my feelings on the subject.
The Constitution of the United States, as I see it, allows that the citizens of this great country should have certain liberties, which are not to be infringed on by the government. I would like to hope that among the unmentioned freedoms is the freedom to love as we choose, be it man or woman, without regard to age, ethnicity, or religion. In a perfect world, these unmentioned freedoms are inherent. In the real world, these freedoms are questioned on basis of preconcieved notions, upbringing, socioeconomic adgendas. Then they are used as fodder to push independant adjenda.
I believe that Marriage is a sacred union between two people. In matters of religion, it is a covenant of god, a union of the soul, an opportunity to make a public commitment to a life together. In terms of the law, it can mean a tax break if the couple chooses to take it.
I can only hope that you agree with me that restricting the right of the people to marry as they choose would not be in the best interests of my fellow Americans. As an unmarried woman, I would hope that when I do love, and am loved in return, that no one will question my right to marry the person of my choice. I hope that when I do choose to marry, no one declares my love against God's will because it does not fit into their idea of what is right. I hope that my goverment does not declare the love that I choose against the constitution. I see love in any form as the ultimate expression of god. No matter which form of god you worship. And in that frame of mind, I don't see how the government can dictate what is between humans and god.
I know you have difficult choices that you must uphold and defend every day. I hope that I have made a good point.
Have a lovely day
I'm not going to read that again because I know I will find spelling and grammer mistakes and then I will feel like a colossol idiot. Love to you all, including those who I KNOW don't agree with my stance on this subject.
