It's truly unfortunate how many people are confused about Question 1 to be voted on in November.
Essentially, it is about redefining marriage. Think about it. How can the Maine Legislature vote such a law without bringing this to the people. Fortunately, signatures were obtained and as a result, we all now have the opportunity to vote on this important issue. Hopefully, Maine people will understand the pitfalls of allowing this legislation to prevail.
They need only to look at what has occurred in Massachusetts because of such a law.
Many parents are torn on this question because their children have adopted the gay lifestyle. They support their children because they do not want to lose them. Instead of seeing this behavior as a disordered lifestyle, they accept the lie that their children are born "gay." This is largely not so.
I believe it is, unfortunately, mainly a learned behavior. During adolescence they associate with those who are living that way and adopt that practice. It is a critical time in their lives and they need to surround themselves with upright Christians who are strong role models who can direct them in good moral behavior.
What is more important here? Supporting their children in the consequences of the prevailing homosexual culture of today or standing up for the truth of what it is: a disordered, sinful lifestyle?
Do not parents need to practice tough love?
Help is out there from a group known as "Courage."
