Re: “Gay marriage gains traction” (TNT, 1-5).

It’s about time that our state stops discriminating against a portion of our citizens. The rules regarding marriage should be the same for everyone. After all, it isn’t a church ceremony that makes a marriage legal. It is the license received from the state.

Kudos to the governor, and here’s hoping our Legislature will do the right thing. “Equal” rights are not “special” rights.
