What wonderful parents Shana and Doug Cihak must be to have raised such a thoughtful, intelligent son. Lennon Cihak took the time to carefully consider a proposed state constitutional amendment on same-sex marriage and reach a reasoned conclusion. Then he tried to influence voters. He is exactly the type of (future) voter we need in our democracy.
Congratulations, Lennon! Welcome to the world of thinking adults. I look forward to seeing your name as a newly elected member of Congress in the future.
Lennon was denied confirmation by his church after he posted a photo on Facebook showing his opposition to a ban on same-sex marriage. As a practicing Roman Catholic, I am astonished to learn that a particular model of marriage is foundational to being a Catholic.
