The following letter was sent to our local Member of Parliament several months ago following his statement that he was in favor of passing legislation to legalize same-sex marriage. I did not receive a response. Mr. Adams will not be running in the next election for which we are thankful.
Let's let our voice be heard when those who are supposedly representing us are going against biblical standards.
Here's that letter:
Dear Mr. Adams:
Greetings! I've always enjoyed my brief conversations with you and I believe you have represented our riding well but I'm surprised and disappointed by the comments attributed to you in today's Peterborough Examiner. I certainly hope that the majority of your constituents are NOT in favour of same-sex marriage. How far we have strayed from the traditional, biblical values that this nation was built upon! I've e-mailed our Prime Minister and urged him to re-think his position and go back to the beliefs and standards he was raised to uphold. I'm embarrassed to be called a Canadian these days and I'm disappointed that someone of your stature would condone same-sex marriage.
I can only pray that sane-thinking, morally-sound, common-sense Canadians and Peterburians will rise up and let you know, in no uncertain terms, that they wholeheartedly disagree with your stand. You certainly are not speaking for me and thousands of others when you make the statements you've made!
God have mercy on us as a nation! Please think about the ramifications of what you're doing! We need a referendum so the voice of the people can be heard!
Praying for you,
