Letter: Thank heaven for the Supreme Court

Thank heaven for a US Supreme Court that unanimously recognizes the validity of state law and the consideration that must be given to activist decisions which attempt to overturn it.

Judge Shelby made a mistake in what he did. States' rights are paramount in matters such as this, and must be carefully viewed. Thirty-two states have similar laws prohibiting homosexual marriages, so Utah is not alone. If the federal government started violating the 10th Amendment, which grants States the right to make their own laws, it would be a serious problem for our entire nation. Fortunately the level-headed Supreme Court recognizes this.
