The California Supreme Court made the right decision to overturn bigoted laws that excluded same-sex marriage. The fact many people in California and around the country are outraged is sad. One would think that in the 21st century, archaic, unfounded fears wouldn't be a reason to deny equal treatment to a minority group. Let's hope that 48 more states can catch on and stop discriminating. I happen to be heterosexual — a man married to a woman. It is no different for those who have always had a natural attraction to the same sex. Expecting those feelings to change is unrealistic and unfair.
