Marriage should be between husband and wife

-A +A
My name is Jonathan Loveland and I’m a Boy Scout with Troop 287. I am writing you as one of my requirements for my communication’s merit badge. My requirement states that I need to write a letter to my local newspaper editor with a topic of my choosing. I chose to tell you my opinion about Proposition 8, same sex marriage. As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, we have a religious statement on the family called “A Proclamation to the World.” In it, it states, “We, the First Presidency and the Council of the 12 Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, solemnly proclaim that marriage between a man and a woman is ordained of God and that the family is central to the Creator’s plan for the eternal destiny of His children.” Also it says, “The first commandment that God gave to Adam and Eve pertained to their potential for parenthood as husband and wife. We declare that God’s commandment for His children to multiply and replenish the earth remains in force. We further declare that God has commanded that the sacred powers of procreation are to be employed only between man and woman, lawfully wedded as husband and wife.” In conclusion, I believe that marriage should only be with man and wife..
