The premise that religious freedom "is at the center" of the marriage equality debate serves no other purpose than to reframe this decades-long debate ("Why America's long history of protecting religion is at the center of gay marriage debate," Nov. 14).
To state that religious freedom "is at the center" of the debate is to imply that the entire issue revolves around, or orbits around, religious freedom, which isn't the case.
In reality, the issue orbits around the ideals espoused by our Constitution that "all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness."
