I LOVE MY CITY…but I too am disgusted with this aspect of it…including the smog. Here is a letter I sent to the PM and to my local MP.
I have voted Liberal since I was old enough to vote. I am now 28 years old and recent events in politics have come to my attention.
Bill C-38, also known as the bill to redefine marriage to allow homosexual unions is a terrible idea, and tampers with the union that God made into a Sacrament. Marriage is sacred, Bill C-38 creates a culture of death (which promotes partnership without the ability to be “fruitful and to multiply” as God commanded) and is absolutely not acceptable to God (according to his word) and cannot be made acceptable in society. You will also open yourselves up to many other religious groups, specifically those who practice Polygamy (i.e. Islam accepts men to have many wives), who will no doubt argue for their rights as well (and since you proclaim to protect the minority, you really are shooting yourselves in the foot here).
I will NEVER vote liberal again if Bill C-38 is passed, and I will openly discourage anyone from voting liberal ever again. I am quite persuasive and have a lot of influence in the community, and will not hesitate to use it.
Please consider the following, and thanks for your time.
Gen. 1 & 2 - we see from the beginning that the complimentarity of the sexes reflects God’s inner unity and His creative power and Fatherhood. God created man and woman to become one flesh which is consummated in the act of marital love.
Gen. 2:18 – throughout the creation story, God says “it is good” seven times. But when God pointed out that man was alone, God says “it is not good.” God then created woman. Man and woman therefore belong together by God’s design, according to His natural and supernatural law.
Gen. 2:24 – God created man and woman so that they could share communion. This communion is consummated in the marital act (which must be between a man and a woman). This communion is also a reflection of the eternal communion of the Blessed Trinity, who created man in His own image and likeness.
Gen. 19:24-28 - the Lord rained fire and brimstone on Sodom and Gomorrah as punishment for the sin of homosexuality. **Homosexuality perverts God’s covenant with humanity. **
Lev. 18:22, 29 - God commands a man never to lie with a male as with a female, or he will be cut off. This refers to supernatural death which is eternal separation from God.
Lev. 20:13 - God says that if a man lies with another man, he shall be put to death. Homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered, unhealthy, and mortally sinful.
Matt. 19:6 - after referring to God’s divine plan for man and woman, Jesus says a husband and wife become one flesh, which ultimately reflects God’s union with humanity through the Church. Homosexual unions pervert this divine truth of God’s love for and union with the human race.
Rom. 1:26 - also, when a woman lies with another women, this is unnatural and a perversion. God wants His children to be pure and holy as He is holy.
Rom. 1:27 – Saint Paul calls the practice of homosexuality shameless, unnatural and a perversity. It is contrary to the natural law, as it eviscerates the life-giving aspect of human sexuality and reduces it to a selfish, pleasure-seeking end.
1 Cor. 6:9 - homosexuality is not part of God’s plan for His kingdom. Homosexuals are called to chastity. 1 Tim. 1:10 - sodomites are called ungodly and sinners, unholy and profane, lawless and disobedient. They are called by God to chastity. It is important to note that homosexual attractions and inclinations, while dangerous, are not by themselves sinful per se. It is the acting out on homosexual attraction that is sinful. Those with homosexual desires can still live a life worthy of Christ by remaining chaste and pure as they abstain from acting out on their desires.
Sound good? Not sure what my little voice would do, but I forwarded this to all my friends and asked that they do the same.
