Purpose of marriage

EDITOR: Mr. Sauve (Dec. 12) says, “Procreation is the purpose of marriage.” Far more than that.

Our American heritage is that, which the homosexual cannot contemplate, that matrimony is the harmony of a lifting lifetime earthly composition to the conditional light of truth. We rightly place procreation as the purpose of the whole universe, and the next day doesn’t come without the God of it authorship stating how. (No matter the odious Supreme Court of the USA.)

    Third, WTF? Not sure what you wrote there, Ms. Hoffman, but there is no "god" like being so saying some thing to the effect that god wants only men and women to be "married" is absurd. Now if you could get him to actually tell me that in words, I might believe him.

    Darrin, if you do speak to God let us know if it's a male or female voice. Always wondered if God is a woman.

    she is responding to this opinion... (Here)EDITOR: Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to consider two cases concerning the legality of same sex marriage, I would like to ask two questions of those who oppose it. First, say that you oppose same sex marriage on the grounds that marriage should be limited to a man and a woman because procreation is the purpose of marriage and a homosexual couple cannot produce children, the reason cited by many opponents. Would you deny marriage to a heterosexual couple who love each other, but choose not to or cannot, due to advanced age or medical issues, have children? Second question: How would the legalization of same sex marriage hurt your marriage? DAVID A. SAUVE Placerville

    so, my daughter and son in law who can't have children should never have gotten married? more questions: why on earth do you care if gay people are married? what difference does that make to you?

    Putting Junes letter into perspective, it could have been written buy any one of a dozen US Republican Congressmen. Regardless, it’s a great day to be an American.

    I see that I have responded to this letter before, but only in regards to whether God had a male or female voice. As for the content of Ms. Hoffman's letter, I'd comment if I knew what "matrimony is the harmony of a lifting lifetime early composition to the conditional light of truth" means. I stand confused.

    PS - Th' Missus and I are celebrating. Our great-granddaughter’s singing the National Anthem at the Shiner Circus in Saginaw Michigan on the 26th. We’re jumping in our climate changing beast and spewing CO2 from here to there. Then we’re racing back here to enjoy the super bowl with family and friends. I sure hope things warm up as the result of our sacrifice. Marriage makes fun stuff!!!!

    Michigan is lovely this time of year. Please don't hurry back. We will be fine.

    Yes indeed, Michael! And now that Michigan is a right-to-work-state I'm sure that it will be even lovelier. I'll bet Michigan's "loveliness quotient curve" is positive. What a shame about California's. I'll keep in touch.

    Phil, if you have a great granddaughter, you must be older than me (75). I thought you were a young pup.

    James, I was captured by a cougar. I'm not even close to 75. OUCH!!!

    Phil, be careful around mountain lions, especially around the older ones.

    The Dei-phobes are out in force on this one. I remember the original letter to editor and replied to it with a historically-oriented perspective written in an adult tone. The reaction to it from many of these same Dei-phobes was about as high schoolish as what we see to Ms Hoffman's piece.
