Mr. Kingsley and all those concerned:
Family and/or religion were never the basis of our nation. The foundation of this country was and is freedom. While many of the founding fathers were some form of Christian, they wished to create this nation to be freed from a tyrannical king “For imposing taxes on us without our consent”, “For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us”, “For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world” among several other reasons outlined in the Declaration of Independence. Family is not mentioned. Religion is only mentioned as one of the freedoms they demanded, and they weren’t referring to only Christianity. As a citizen of the United States, you have the freedom to worship any god in any way, something that isn’t allowed in other parts of the world even today.
Though I don’t recall reading that a family is solely defined as a sacred union between one man and one woman and can only include children born of that union, I don’t have a problem with you believing that and fighting against marriages between people of the same sex or marriages to multiple people. I do, however, have a problem with children being included in this statement. How dare you claim/imply that children born outside of marriage, children who are adopted, et cetera, are not family! You should be ashamed of yourself. Before you start making claims like this, you should pay more attention to other actions clearly outlawed to make sure you are free from sin (shaving, eating ANY type of meat, allowing your wife to speak in church, wearing cloth made from multiple materials such as a cotton/polyester blend. I can give you scriptures if interested).
Also, before you start talking about what holds the nation together or destroys it, you should know a little more about your nation. A separation of church (religion) and state (the country) was implemented for a reason. If you wish to follow your religion word for word and expect others to do so, you should follow it exactly. You should be killing people every day, or is that something else you choose to overlook?
