In Sunday's Viewpoint section, an article written by Valerie A. Larabee titled "Logic doesn't support ban on gay, lesbian marriage" missed the mark (July 27, Page G4). Her main point is that the government has the authority to determine who can get married and that we, the American public, should accept it.

It is "we the people" who decide. If we do not want gay marriages, we will tell the government and the government should respond. I am tired of hearing that I do not have a brain and that I should conform to other people's logic. I do have a brain, and I should voice my views.
