Appalled by ND same-sex lawsuit

I wasn’t a bit surprised to see in the newspaper the story about the lawsuit to overturn North Dakota’s ban on homosexual marriage, but I was appalled.

I had started pleading with Rep. Josh Boschee, D-N.D., back in May to not do that here. Here’s my first email to him: “I plead with you to put a stop to this heresy ... you know in your heart of hearts that marriage is between a man and a woman; you are here only because of your mom and your dad. The voters have spoken and we don’t want this here! Please get ahold of these proponents and have them avoid/skip North Dakota. Please. I beg of you. Thanks, Ron.”

Many more emails followed this one, apparently to no avail. Seven couples overturn the votes of 400,000 North Dakotans?

About a year ago, Pravda, the communist Russian newspaper, called America the “Sodom & Gomorrah of the world,” and we know what happened to Sodom & Gomorrah. I smell the odor of burning sulfur. Where is right and wrong in America?
