Heights reader responds to letter on judge’s gay-marriage ruling in Utah

Posted

To the Editor:

In response to Ms. Andrews’ open letter to the Utah judge upholding “gay marriages,” dated Dec. 28, I would like to respond by addressing her concerns about gay marriages. 

You said you were a school teacher, that you and your partner have been together for 29 years and that you were married in the state of Washington. 

My question to you is this: If you were married in Washington State, why did you come back to Texas? 

Secondly, the Texas Constitution is very explicit concerning gay marriages. 

If you and your significant other are not happy living in the state of Texas may I suggest to you that there are numerous states that recognize gay marriages and you may want to consider your options. 

There are numerous GOOD people in the state of Texas who do not consider gay marriages in any way, shape or form. 

Please understand this response is not in any way chastisement or disregard for yourself and significant other, just that for you to remember, this is the “Bible Belt.”

I wish you the best.

Dr. Gary Honaker
