Letters: Gay rights and religion

Re “Gay marriage at the polls,” Editorial, Oct. 28

The shift in public opinion regarding gay marriage has more to do with civil rights than religion.

People finally understand that denying marriage also denies legal protection afforded to the partner who maintains the household in community property states. It denies partners the right to file joint federal tax returns. Many companies deny medical coverage to same-sex couples.

Discrimination against one group of people is legally unsound and should have nothing to do with religion.
