Lynda Kouroupis' recent letter to the editor was one of the best thought-out comments on the subject of gay marriage that I have heard or read ("O'Malley's rejection of Catholic teaching," Feb. 17). She expressed herself in a calm, reasoned manner (which reminded me of the late Ron Smith, the voice of reason).
She did not resort to name-calling or an emotional rant concerning the right or wrong of gay marriage. She presented the facts about her Catholic faith as she knew them and let those facts speak for themselves.
Wouldn't it be great if all persons involved in this debate would express themselves as calmly and clearly? People on both sides of the issue could take a lesson from her letter. Thanks, Ms. Kouroupis, for bringing some civility to this debate.
