Marc Chase’s Feb. 18 column was a brilliant statement of conservative principles. But it contained one mistaken premise.

Republicans in the Indiana Legislature did not abandon their conservative values by seeking a constitutional guarantee that marriage is between a man and a woman, and providing that the people be given the right to decide this issue.

That is the logical conservative response to an unprecedented attack by homosexual activists on the family — the very foundation of our civilization. Conservatives did not start this fight! Liberals came up with this preposterous idea that a man can marry a man and a woman a woman!

If conservatives do not “conserve” what is good in a legal way, extremists will arise to fill the gap. Thomas Jefferson warned that a second American Revolution might be necessary to restore values future generations may lose. And our country is losing it!
