Re: “A yes vote says God made a mistake” (letter, 9-18).
What I believe to be a relevant issue that seemingly is being overlooked is that marriage is a civil act, and religion has nothing to do with it. Comments such as “strange gender equality” and “persistent rejection of God’s instruction for marriage” have no place in a civil environment.
Religious environments have created endless amounts of mental and physical anguish. One has only to consider the Crusades of earlier times for constructive examples.
