In regards to "Get back to the moral basics" (June 24, Letters): As a woman, "my rights" mean I can vote, work outside the home, control my own money, divorce if I choose, have control over my own body and a lot more.
Women weren't allowed to do these things years ago. And the African American community, I'm pretty sure, also likes "my rights."
I did not choose to be straight. I had no conscious thought about it; it is who I am. It is the same for gay people; it's who they are and not a choice. We are born the way we are. Watch "Anyone and Everyone" on public television; educate yourself. If we want a country to be proud of, we need equal rights for all people.
I am thrilled with the Supreme Court's decision. Once again do your research, stop living in fear and ignorance, set yourself free, live and let live.
Never miss a local story.
One of our sons is gay and he is in the military serving his country. We are proud of him and we love him!
