You have probably heard by now that the California Supreme Court has legalized gay marriage. Here is what the mayor of San Francisco had to say following the decision, "As California goes, so goes the rest of the nation. It's inevitable. This door's wide open now. It's going to happen whether you like it or not."
No doubt, the mayor's arrogance will inspire those who disagree with him to lash out at him and the court's ruling. I'm also sure this decision bothers a lot of West Texans. But before any of us step onto our "high horse" we need to remember that the divorce rate for traditional marriage now exceeds 50% - not the best statistics to defend our cause.
So consider this, if you're wondering what you should do about this California decision, I have a suggestion. If you believe in traditional values and traditional marriage, make your marriage work! Or support and help those whose marriage's are falling apart.
Believe me; divorce has a greater negative impact on traditional marriages in West Texas than some liberal judge's decision in California.
Make the relationship with your spouse stronger and your children's lives and future marriages will be stronger. That will make this a better West Texas in the future.
