Letter: The marriage question in a nutshell

A short summary of Maine's gay marriage fiasco:

1) A majority of voters motivated by homophobia.

2) "Yes on 1" arguments: silly, coming from a desperate need to create something to cover up the anti-gay bigotry.

3) Concept of a majority vote on majority rights: a travesty.

4) What to do now: pressure the president to take the lead for federal marriage equality.
