Robert Yount's letter about opposing same-gender marriage makes many good points, but also makes him look like a fool. Yes, most opposed to same-gender marriage aren't violent. Why, though, does he link the success of opposite-gender marriage to the legal and financial benefits? Maybe he didn't marry for love, but most people I know do.

He questions why same-gender couples should be entitled to these benefits. Why not? Why should the law treat people differently based on marital status at all?

As an aside, he thinks that gays can change their sexual orientation. He can't, so I don't understand why he thinks I can. These so-called "changeover" cases are people who want to go back in the closet. Just because you sleep in a garage doesn't make you a car.
