While drinking a cup of coffee on Easter morning before Mass, I read the disparaging article by James Gill regarding Louisiana Family Forum. Apparently Mr. Gill overlooks the good Family Forum does in defending Christian principles and family values, alongside groups like Louisiana Right to Life and Louisiana Catholic Bishops in the Legislature. In an era when many equate the deterioration of our society to the decline of the family, Gene Mills and his organization stand tall as a beacon of HOPE.

How can any respected columnist be so narrowminded as to state, if one group is in favor, rational people are against it? The moral majority has stood on the sidelines for too long watching Rome burn and a great country fall in disarray.
