In his letter to the editor ("Gay marriage contradicts God's word"), Robert Greene says he is upset with the politicians that we have entrusted to run our government and believe they have sold us out. I have to point out that Maryland's legislators represent all Maryland citizens, including tax-paying gays and lesbians.
Mr. Greene alleges that "those of us who know the Bible know that it soundly condemns homosexuality, despite what some denominationalists say." That would be relevant if we lived in a theocracy like Iran or Saudi Arabia. But we live in a secular society governed by the U.S. Constitution, of which the First Amendment states that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion" and the U.S. Supreme Court has held that the states are bound by the First Amendment.
