Guest Editorial: "Feedback - Who gets to decide?"

Editorial Logo (2013) Editorial Logo (2013)
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

In response to my guest editorial last week suggesting that Alabama is fighting a losing battle against the federal courts on same sex marriage, we received these comments among others.

Kenny said:

“It is time for those who oppose it to realize that they have lost that fight and justice has prevailed as it always has.”

Harold wrote:

“The Republicans want to save tax money, but they are willing to spend it on this. Shame on them.”

Another viewer commented:

“We the people of Alabama decided that we do not want gay marriage in our state…

We obviously said, 'NO!' There is nothing left to say.”

Rick said:

“A State cannot win in a U.S. federal court on these issues. Leave our rights alone!”

Katherine wrote:

“When the people vote to reject something by an 81% margin and then a judge just strikes it down… What is the point in voting? Wasting tax payers' dollars?

And Valerie commented:

“Well, I think the Supremacy Clause pretty much answers that, especially as it relates to civil rights and/or discrimination.”

As always, we welcome your comments.

    The subject of legalizing marijuana is more openly discussed these days, but I sense I will be long gone before our state ever passes such legislation.

    I can’t begin to thank all the people in Montgomery who went out of their way to make an outsider feel at home. In only a year and a half we have made lifelong friends, friends who we would count on with our lives and our children’s lives. But it is the South, and that is what you do.
