Public Policy is opposed to allowing a person's sexual preference
to be a basis for establishing a protected class of people. While
all Americans, including homosexuals, have basic rights which are
fully secured under the Constitution, legislation to punish crimes

Legalization of same-sex marriages, which demean the traditional family,
would open the door to the legalization of perverted and destructive
institutions leading to the breakdown of the family in particular
and society as a whole.
