Gay Marriage vs. Iraq and Port Security

Dear Editor,

It would appear that with the multitude of issues that the people of Massachusetts and this country are facing, that there are far more laudable goals than stripping hard working Americans of their civil rights. The judiciary has spoken in Massachusetts concerning the fate of same-sex marriage. Let's not tie up valuable resources on discrimination and the reversal of a Judiciary finding.

I would suggest that we move forward and tackle more important issues like an exit plan from Iraq and the merit of having Arabs securing our eastern seaports. When one looks at gay marriage in comparison to these issues, there is not a comparison. I suggest in investing our energies towards national security as opposed to discrimination.
