Decision on gay marriage should be respected

Dear Sir,

One hears that His Excellency the Governor of Bermuda has given Royal Assent to the Domestic Partnership Act after the vote in the Parliament of Bermuda and the democratic referendum in Bermuda.

Namely in which the majority of ordinary Bermudians voted for marriage to be only the union of a man and a woman.

Ordinary people in Great Britain, after all, were not consulted about the redefinition of marriage, and a petition objecting to any such change was apparently ignored.

The right of Bermuda to decide upon what constitutes marriage as the union of a man and a woman should be respected as a matter for Bermudians to decide upon.
