I wish to commend the efforts of all those who helped to dissuade the Illinois House of Representatives from voting on the so-called Religious Freedom and Marriage Restoration Act. This outcome respects the fact that a re-definition of marriage to include same-sex marriage is beyond the competence of the state, because marriage both precedes the state and is a necessary condition for the continuation of the state. Since the very notion of marriage between people of the same sex is contrary to natural law, continued efforts to re-define marriage should be resisted by all those concerned for the common good.
