Sanctity of marriage

Dear Editor:My wife and I have 10 children; five boys and five girls. About 30 years ago, my wife's mother sent to our children 10 religious cards titled "Sex is Sacred." I would like to comment on that subject as it applies to today's tragically degraded morals. Each human being has a body, mind, soul and spirit. God is a spirit being. God is sacred. The spirit part of each human being is sacred. God created human beings as men and women. He gave them the faculty of sexual intercourse through which they can create another human being that has a spirit from the moment of its conception. That is the only way man can create another human being, even if it is done with sperm from a male and an egg from a female outside of the woman's body. A thousand scientists in a thousand years could never create a live human being that would have a body, mind, soul and spirit except through the act of sexual intercourse between a man and a woman. God instituted the Sacrament of Marriage for a man and a woman entering into a union using their faculty of sexual intercourse primarily for procreation. Marriage between a man and a woman is sacred. God gave every human being a free will. When two men or two women choose to live together, deviating from the plan that God made, there is no way on earth that a same-sex couple can create life, or another human being that has a spirit. Therefore, they cannot create something sacred. Therefore, a union between two men or two women cannot be considered sacred. The moral decay started with the sexual revolution of the 60s. In my opinion, children should not be allowed to enter into the third grade unless they have memorized and can stand in front of the class and recite the 10 Commandments from memory. In future generations, this would eliminate many of the problems our society faces today. - Harvey Fiala, Downey
