Re: “Obama endorses same-sex marriage” (TNT, 5-10).

The impeccable logic of the human heart cannot possibly object to loving commitment between two people, whether gay or straight, because loving commitment, in any form, is good for society.

That is why the opponents of gay marriage never appeal to the natural compassion of the heart. They can only appeal to a 5,000-year-old tribal law code from the Middle East to justify their irrational fear and bigotry.
