Letter to the Editor

In response to Brad Tupi's letter “Tyranny, not liberty” (July 3 and criticizing the U.S. Supreme Court's decisions on same-sex marriage: Many states, for years, approved Jim Crow laws against blacks and laws against miscegenation. The courts struck down these unjust laws.

Such court action is not tyranny. It is justice. It is guaranteeing the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness. The tyranny is in the existence of bad laws.
