Rich James' Aug. 25 column caught my attention. James asserts the drive for our state Legislature to pass a gay-marriage ban and a presumed state referendum on this issue will result in businesses fleeing our state as well as others not moving to Indiana. Come on.

One of the Eli Lilly executives opined that if a constitutional change is approved, his company would not be able to recruit the talent it needs to develop drugs that improve lives. What? So am I to infer there aren't any heterosexual happily married men or women with the aptitude to develop effective medicinal products?

It's scare tactics like this that cause people to fold their tents and serve interests other than the eternal.

The Bible states, "If my people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from Heaven and I wil forgive their sin and heal their land." (2 Chronicles 7:14).

- Timothy Vassar, Lowell
