Like it or not, the United States was founded on biblical teachings.
The rules are set by the creator for his children. Man was created and was lonely. God made a helper suitable for him. It was a woman. Man and woman are to become one flesh. That's marriage. Same-sex couples cannot, by definition of marriage, be "married."
Christianity is a choice. If you are a child of God, you must go by his will and testament. No one has the right to change the will and testament of anyone else. A person who votes "no" on Question 1 is playing God.
As a preacher, people have asked me if they can divorce and still live together to get better financial benefits. God says no. Couples have lived together outside of marriage for years, but it is not God's way. Yet no one hates those couples.
Christianity is God's family. He is the head and the father of the family on Earth and in heaven. He made the rules, like it or not. When people don't comply, they are claiming to be better than God. When Christians don't comply, they claim to know better than God.
I hope that all my brothers and sisters in Christ will defend the will and testament of God, the father in heaven and on Earth, and will stand up for marriage by joining me in voting "yes" on Question 1.
God bless America.
