Letter about “Love is Love”


Fri, Aug 30th, 2013
Posted in Lanesboro Letter to the Editor



To the Editor,

Going through a few back issue of the Journal, I just read the cover story from August 12 -- “Love is Love.” I offer you a hearty CONGRATULATIONS and thank you for choosing to run that story -- and on the cover, no less! Having volunteered many hours on the “Vote No” campaign, I am very aware that there was, sadly, some opposition to marriage equality in Fillmore County. The decision to run this article was courageous in the face of that and, I believe, helpful to an inevitable change in attitudes. As a loud and proud “straight ally,” I thank you again. And to the beautiful brides -- I wish you a lifetime of love, as well as all the other benefits us heterosexual couples receive.
