Keep religion out of it

I have to respond to Duncan Bean’s March 10 letter regarding the purpose of sexual attraction. With his reasoning, my marriage to my husband is invalid because we choose not to have children.

Yes, “practicing one’s religion is a natural and constitutional right.” But that right ends where another person’s right to freedom of/from religion begins. Marriage existed before the god so many people claim to follow.

How does that fit into his narrow worldview? His religion has no place in my or anyone else’s bedroom, and it’s high time people stop trying to legislate by this erroneous belief. Don’t like gay marriage? Don’t get gay married. It’s that easy. You don’t get to force your beliefs on anyone else.
