Coloradoans may see another proposal for gay marriage

Posted on: July 14, 2011

In 2006, an amendment was approved by Coloradoans that a union of one man and one woman is a valid marriage. However, the gay community in Colorado hasn’t given up on forcing gay marriage on the citizens of Colorado.

Earlier this year, a proposal to allow civil unions passed the Democratic state Senate but failed the Republican House in Colorado. Now a 19-year old college student is gathering signatures to get a constitutional amendment on the 2012 ballot to repeal Colorado’s gay marriage ban and replace it with language saying marriage is allowed regardless of sex.

How many times do the citizens of Colorado have to say ‘no’? We may not be as progressive as New Yorkers who don’t care about marriage but we did say “no” and “no” means NO!

It is sad to see that sacred institutions left in our society is being constantly challenged. If you are against gay marriage you are called homophobic. This is not true. No wonder this country is so messed up as it is. No wonder our kids don’t respect anyone or anything. The norms that make a good society are constantly challenged and berated by those who want to bring this country

When will people like this leave us alone with some dignity in our way of living that has been a norm for centuries?  Why does a minority want to change the world to fit their way of life and disregard the majority? I hope this amendment won’t be able to get on the ballot next year and if it does I hope the voters of Colorado say once again in a loud voice “NO” to gay marriage.
