Sam Marcellus' Separation of Church.

Sam Marcellus of Americans United for Separation of Church and State is wrong on three points (Telegram & Gazette 12/14). The Establishment Clause of the Constitution; 1) Never mentions the Separation of Church and State. 2) Prohibits the establishment of a State religion, not the endorsement of religion, and 3) Guarantees the free expression of religion, not just its private expression.

America was founded as a Nation under God, with the deity as the guarantor of our rights, but the Massachusetts Supreme Court wants to remove God from the public square. Due to this Court action, Christians, Jews, and Muslims will have their belief that marriage is between one man and one woman further mocked and undermined by the public schools and other agents of the State. Eventually the State will force Catholic and other religious schools to hire and retain married homosexual teachers, in contravention to our belief in God’s law and Natural law.

While all affirm that homosexuals have God-given rights to liberty and freedom, by design their unions contradict the Bible and never produce children, so by design they have neither a God-given nor Natural Law right to marry. In a Democracy, one would have at least expected the chance to exercise our God-given right to vote on any alleged man-made right to homosexual marriage.
