Jose Gabilondo asserts in his July 13 Other Views article, Marriage equality a step to end bigotry, that those opposed to same-sex marriage are bigots. Has it ever occurred to him that many of these same people treat gays with the same dignity and respect as they do any other person? Does he support the right of brothers to marry? If not, would it make him bigoted toward brothers?
Traditional marriage has been the cornerstone of Western civilization and should not be dismissed indiscriminately. Our system provides for states to experiment. Many have legalized same-sex marriage and, most likely, more will. Why don’t we let the democratic system play out?
