DEFINING MOMENTS

In Steve Kleinedler’s essay “The Very Definition of Marriage” (Perspective, June 2), I think he says it all in his last statement: “As a citizen, I have great hope that the court will rule in favor of marriage equality.” I stand right there with him and hope for the same. After that, let’s hope the military is smart enough to offer government benefits to the spouses of gay soldiers. Being gay is not a choice, and this country needs to respect that. Until such time as our nation and its people accept everyone for who they are, gay or straight, it won’t be considered the home of the free in my eyes.
