Newman: Marriage Is Union Between One Man and One Woman
Dacula Patch columnist Ray Newman weighs in on same-sex marriage debate in Atlanta Journal Constitution opinion piece.
Dacula Patch columnist Ray Newman was recently invited to write an opinion piece for the Atlanta Journal Constitution regarding his views on same-sex marriage.
The May 23 column was written in response to President Barack Obama's endorsement of same-sex marriage earlier this month.
In an interview with ABC News, Obama said, "At a certain point, I've just concluded that for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married."
Newman affirmed his support for the notion that marriage is intended to be a relationship between one man and one woman and wrote, "I am saddened we have come to the place in our nation where cultural changes are now impacting behavior more than the traditional building blocks that have served us well throughout history."
Newman concluded, "The foundation upon which our nation is built must remain strong or we will see the nation fall into ruin."
What is your opinion on same-sex marriage? Should marriage be limited to a union between one man and one woman or, as President Obama suggested, should same-sex couples be able to get married? Let us know in the comments.
