This is in response to the Oct. 21 article "Sisters plan to vote no on same-sex marriage."
I found the article to be entirely fraught with hypocrisy.
First and foremost, I have the utmost respect for other people's spiritual beliefs, and believe that all people should be allowed to practice and speak those beliefs in a way that feels right to them. In fact, as Americans, people have a duty to protect other people's rights to do and think as they please, as long as the rights of others are not violated.
It is for that reason that I believe those women are wrong in their opposition to same-sex marriage. They say " ... we have no right to hate them and no right to tell them what they can and cannot do."
I couldn't agree more. They should not be allowed to tell two people who love and care for each other whether or not they can get married.
If they choose not to accept that as "normal or natural," then more power to them. They can believe whatever they like. But do not tell me who I do or do not have a right to marry.
