Readers' forum: Homosexuals can marry

Published: Saturday, Dec. 20 2008 12:00 a.m. MST

Is it too much to ask the Deseret News to stop referring to Proposition 8 as having eliminated homosexuals' right to marry? That's not what the bill did nor was intended to do. The bill defined marriage as being between one man and one woman. Homosexuals can marry all they want. They have that right. But, as their lifestyle probably won't lead them in that direction, homosexuals have the ability to enter into civil unions that give them all of California's state-level rights that are granted with marriage.
