William J. of Concord, NH writes in The Concord Monitor:
Granite Staters in any other generation would have scoffed at the idea of gay marriage. Because they were all bigots? Of course not! It's because it goes against a basic common sense truth of who we are as human beings. We are male and female, and when we come together in love, a baby can come into being. Men and women need a relationship in a lifelong pledge of faithfulness. Likewise, children need mothers and fathers.
Somewhere, I believe we all realize this is true. And besides, the vast majority of Americans do not believe in gay marriage.Whenever gay marriage comes up in state referendums, it is voted down. And after all, isn't this a democracy, where the most important issues should be decided by the people themselves?
