Uphold marriage

To the editor:
I think all citizens, including policymakers, should do their part to uphold the institution of traditional marriage because it provides the best environment for having and raising children – who are the future of our society.
Strengthening and protecting marriage creates a stronger foundation for the family – which is a basic social building block for the human family. A stronger family foundation produces a stronger nation that benefits many future generations.
Marriage is already defined in North Carolina as the union of one man and one woman, but is on thin ice. Voting for the Marriage Protection Amendment puts this definition into our state constitution where it will be safe from being redefined by activist liberal judges and politicians.
I encourage everyone to vote for the Marriage Protection Amendment on May 8. Traditional marriage should be protected and reinforced – not attacked and redefined.
