It is refreshing to see that as a society we are moving beyond our obsession with social issues. And it’s even more refreshing moving in the direction of acceptance and respect for the fact that people do not fit in one limited category, and that they are as diverse as the natural environment that surrounds us.
I fully support Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision to extend full federal benefits to same-sex couples regardless of where they are married [“More good news for LGBT equality,” Opinion, Feb. 12]. Those states that continue to deny same-sex marriages are doing great harm to their citizens. Human beings do not live forever, so to deny basic rights mean millions go through life suffering at the hands of narrow-minded bigots who only have their own selfish interests in mind.
