Letters to the editor: For love of freedom, gay marriage should be accepted

In reply to a recent column by Tom Collins “Love means saying no”; do I have to remind Mr. Collins that the same argument, “…protect the dignity of the individual and of society as a whole” is the same argument used by those that were against racially mixed marriages?
Our founding fathers were adamantly against any religious group or groups forcing their “Bronze Age” rules and beliefs on everyone else as the First Amendment clearly states.
The relationship between two individuals truly has no effect on society as a whole. And to believe otherwise is blatant display of religious-based fear mongering and outright bigotry.
I urge everyone to contact your legislators and ask them to vote “Yes” on Senate Bill 10.
Ask them to do it out of love of country and freedom.

Mike Gruenwald,
La Salle

Love and freedom do not discriminate, thay are feelings that benefit all and deserved by all.
Thanks, Michael, for your sentiments.
Becoming conscious, peaceful, loving beings is the norm, the "law" will catch up..
