Same-sex weddings monumental for Washington state
Biased, liberal reporting
Enough already with the stories and photos regarding gay marriage [“Making history by saying ‘I do,’ ” page one, Dec. 10]. Some of us folks just aren't interested in 24/7 coverage of this event.
Isn't there more important news you could be reporting on? Like, say, the embassy attack and subsequent cover up in Benghazi?
Longtime subscribers are getting fed up with the constant biased, liberal “reporting” of the news.

Expanded vision of life and love
I want to say thank you to the voters of Washington. I know that for many it was a clear choice to approve Referendum 74 and for others it was a clear choice to not approve marriage equality for all loving couples.
To those who were on the fence and moved to cast an “I do” vote to approve, I thank you. Your votes made the difference, I am sure of it. You will not be disappointed. With the passage of marriage equality for all, same-sex couples feel a renewed responsibility to live loving lives that strengthen the meaning of marriage, community and family.
As the state of Washington has expanded its view of marriage and family, it has expanded its vision of life and love.

It may come to The Times as a shock: There are some of us who are not thrilled with the same-sex marriage law.
Aside from the fact that I find the law offensive, having it take up the entire front page strikes me as rather dubious journalism.
Syria made page six; Egypt made page seven — both arguably of far more importance than gay marriage.
