The U.S. Supreme Court has spoken ["Milestones for equality," Editorial, June 27]. The court has changed the face of marriage that for thousands of years has been a respectful, educational and sacramental union between a man and a woman. The court has stepped on the large majority of the world's people, and tossed away any chance to bring us back to traditional values and moral obligations that made this country what it used to be.

All the legislation in the world will not change the minds and morals of folks who hold dear to them these inherited values. The court can change the law, but not the minds of the caring majority. We now live in a society that requires its families to be the sole tradition teachers to our children, and to move away from what the government, schools and media indoctrinate them with.
