What God, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson Meant

Dear Source:
I would like to take this opportunity to respond to Mr. Wilson and others in the Comentary section of yours of 2/20/09, concerning Rev. Ed Cullen and "Legislating Against Gay Marriage," I am a Virgin Islander who was born and raised on St. Croix and moved to the Mid-West a couple of years ago for health reasons. I am a former member of Pastor Ed's congregation and I know that he and my good friend Pastor Benji are correct in what they have put forward. This really is not a matter of "Legislating Against Gay Marriage," It is a matter of standing up for God and His Word. I know that His, God's, intention from the beginning is that marriage must be between a man and a woman. Our Virgin Island culture has believed that this is so and until now (to the best of my recollection) have upheld this. Our liberal society today is trying to push this, (same sex agenda) on the nation as a whole, and the majority of the nation is against it. The founders of our country, and those who wrote the Constitution believed marriage between one man and one woman to be true and if there was the slightest inclination in their minds, that this would become a problem at a future time in history, they would have made provisions therein to prevent it from happening.
Our nation was founded on the principles found in God's Word, and marriage between one man and one woman is one of those Judeo Christian Principels, which as God fearing men, and messengers of His Word, Rev. Cullen and Rev. Benjamin, and I pray that others of like conviction must stand on. So, as Born Again Evangelical Christians, we must take a stand for what is right according to God's Word, the Bible, and face all the critics etc. that comes our way.
