Fighting for marriage equality


Letters to the Editor

Brandy Saucedo-Ceballos
Thank you for the article “Wedding Bell Blues” (Clifton Adcock, July 11, Oklahoma Gazette). Oklahoma couple Sharon Baldwin and Mary Bishop’s fight for marriage equality is a powerfully current subject on, in my humble opinion, a very simple human rights issue.

Newspeak


CFN

Gazette staff
One of the legacies left by 1984 author George Orwell is having his name describe how totalitarian governments can use language to distort words, so much so that words or phrases could actually end up describing the exact opposite of what they purport to mean.

Under-handed


CFN

Gazette staff

Okie country cutie Carrie Underwood is guilty of many things: having a powerful singing voice, being hot, winning Grammys, being hot, lending legitimacy to American Idol, being hot, marrying a hockey player, being hot and being hot.

Marriage equality is up for grabs


Letters to the Editor

Wanda Jo Stapleton
“Equal Justice Under Law” is engraved on the front of the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C. To me, the phrase — when applied to marriage — means “marriage equality,” both same-sex marriage and heterosexual marriage.

Let them eat cake, eventually


CFN

Gazette staff
Famed statistician (yes, that’s a real thing) Nate Silver, who correctly predicted the winner in all 50 states and the District of Columbia in last year’s presidential election, is at it again. In a March 26 post on his blog, FiveThirtyEight: Nate Silver’s Political Calculus, he posited that support for same-sex marriage is increasing steadily and that a majority of U.S. states will vote in favor of it as soon as 2016.

A giant step toward equality


Commentary

Scott J. Hamilton
Last week, I witnessed something I never expected to see in my lifetime. When I heard the ruling of the Supreme Court declare that the U.S. government can no longer discriminate against me or my friends, I wept. Now, at last, my marriage to my husband will be recognized in our own country.
