Re: “A banner year for same-sex couples and pot smokers” (editorial, 12-21).

2012 may have been a banner year for same-sex couples, but it was not a banner year for Washingtonians.

Being unwilling to see homosexuality as a moral issue and finding the pursuit of virtue inconvenient, we invented a “civil right” and congratulated ourselves.

In reality, however, all “this important step forward for civil rights” has done is serve to suppress what is right. Shame on us.
