Editor,Opponents of gay rights and same-sex marriage rights often cite morality as the basis for their positions. But what is morality? What is moral?It was once considered moral for a man to own slaves. It was once considered moral for a man to essentially own his wife, as women had few individual rights of self-determination, such as the right to vote or own property. I've even heard rumors that it was once moral, in some parts of the country, for a man to "own" as many wives as he could support.
