Gay Rights Are Everybody's Rights | Letters to the Editor | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Gay Rights Are Everybody's Rights

Letter to the Editor

It's so simple! The Constitution, Amendment 14, Sec. 1, states that all people have "equal protection under the laws." If heteros have the right to marry, so do gays because of equal protection." The meaning is absolutely clear. Denying it is unconstitutional. So why are we debating it? We're all the same people! It's never been tested in a federal court, but it's going to be.
