Try 1 month for $5

Regarding the item in the Jan. 27 Gazette (Wyoming edition) about a bill before the Wyoming Legislature, that would allow the voters of Wyoming to decide whether to amend the state constitution to deny recognition of same sex marriages performed elsewhere, I would like to say this.

So far, all I've seen from those opposed to gay marriage is fear. Fear of what I do not know. Certainly, two gay men, or two lesbians being married has no effect on the marriage of any man and woman.

With divorce rates at 50 percent there is nothing sanctified about it. Two parents, who choose to have children, is surely better than just one parent or no parents at all for children in foster homes or in some place where they wait to be adopted.

This country was founded with the idea of equality for all. Over the last 230 plus years, that equality has evolved to include a wide range of groups. Where is the equality in this, "the Equality State", when discrimination is, or may be, written into the constitution.

Along with my home state of Massachusetts, the sky has not fallen in Connecticut, Canada, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium or South Africa.

Gay marriage is a small part of the evolution of humankind. As such, it will be impossible to stop, so why even try?
