Re: “Overturn harmful legislation” (letter, 4-15).
The author claims that marriage between a man and a women is the foundation of civilization. To that person, only the people who subscribe to that concept of marriage can be included in civilization.
I find that very troubling. I am heterosexual, and I don’t personally understand why two men or two women who fall in love want to get married and have a life together equal to everyone else. But it is not important that I understand that. It’s only important that they have the right under our Constitution to be different and not be excluded.
It is correct that our legislators pass statutes that protect the rights of all people, no matter how different they think. Any ballot measure that would overturn the statute for equal marriage for everyone would be harmful to our civilization.
