Offensive Carlson cartoon mocks traditional marriage

The cartoon by Stuart Carlson of the Universal Press Syndicate on the op-ed page of the Buffalo News July 8 was in my opinion offensive, disgusting and very disturbing. The cartoon showed an older disheveled married couple remarking to each other how the luster and sanctity of their marriage was fading because of the falling obstacles in this country to gay marriage.

His attempt at mocking traditional marriage has left me with the opinion that this must be akin to something that is happening in his own life. I personally think that there is a sanctity in a marriage between a man and a woman, when they decide together to begin a family.

It is unfortunate that talented people like him, or people he knows, have lost sight of this beautiful tradition and have stooped to making fun of something they have difficulty experiencing themselves.
