Equal protection

— As an elected official and citizen in a modern civilization, I extend my congratulations to the good people of Pennsylvania who may finally join with their loved ones in marriage after decades of prohibition. Now let’s hope the so-called conservative politicians of our state don’t decide to waste another few million taxpayer dollars to appeal this reasonable court  ruling. It is funny how they are only “activist judges” when angry people disagree with them, but those people forget how in our nation courts exist to protect citizens from the tyranny of the majority restricting civil rights.  

Legal marriage is not dependent on religion, procreation, or other people’s personal opinion. Best wishes to the citizens of Pennsylvania who are finally enjoying equal protection of the laws!

Erik Viker,

Selinsgrove
