I can’t imagine that a simpler, more succinct and logical argument could be made for the absurdity of the opposition to gay and lesbian marriage than that of Tina Morrison’s (3/7, Opinion, “Here’s the real threat: Bigotry”).
She expressed thoughts I have always held and often wanted to put to paper but was never quite able to effectively express. The column should be required reading for every person who supports denying gays and lesbians this choice. In my opinion, the common-sense arguments she makes for her position are irrefutable.
For many years, my neighbors were a gay couple. I remain close friends with them. They are two of the nicest, most thoughtful people I have ever met. They’ve been together for nearly 30 years, far longer than virtually any of the heterosexual couples I know.
As Ms. Morrison so eloquently writes, how would their being able to marry, if they chose, possibly harm anyone?
