Church State Issues

Column by Cathi Herrod is ironic

Cathi Herrod, president of the Center for Arizona Policy gives some lousy reasons against gay marriage Poor Cathi Herrod, president of the Center for Arizona Policy, seems oblivious to the fact that her entire guest column underscored why gay people want and should be allowed the equality to marry (“Traditional marriage is foundation of our future,” Opinions, Tuesday).

She says studies support that married people live longer and that children with married parents do better in school, are less likely to live in poverty and are less likely to get in trouble with the law. She continues saying median household incomes of married men are higher than unmarried men.

Her entire piece focuses on how the bonds of marriage are important. I agree, marriage is a good thing! Marriage is a human right, for all the reasons mentioned and more.

So, I “hope and pray that the court rules on the side of true marriage” and will support marriage equality.
