Let God's law be obeyed, not same-sex law

After I read the Monday headline, "'It's about time' – Sterling women first same-sex couple to marry in county," I have been bothered all day and felt I must write to you about this subject.

No, no, no. You are wrong, wrong, wrong. Those of us who disagree with this philosophy are not in agreement and do not appreciate reading these headlines in your newspaper.

Where in the world is SVM's reporter getting her information so that she could write this article? She wrote, "The new law went into effect June 1, and changed the definition of marriage in Illinois from 'between a man and a woman' to 'between two people.'"

If you have a copy of God's word, the Bible, you may read what God has to say about this subject in Genesis 2, verses 18-25. "Then the Lord said, 'It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.'" Verse 24: "For this cause a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and they shall become one flesh."

I Timothy 1, verses 8-10, says, "But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching."

God's law is the law we need to recognize.
