LETTERS TO THE TIMES

Wedded to Tradition

August 13, 2004

A Washington state judge last week said that under that state's constitution, marriage is not exclusively heterosexual. Marriage may be entered into by any two people. In Missouri, meanwhile, voters last week overwhelmingly passed a state constitutional amendment defining marriage in traditional terms. Yet Missourians have no guarantee that state judges, or federal judges, might decide that their new amendment is unconstitutional. The truth is that the only good defense against activist judges is a federal constitutional amendment preserving the traditional definition of marriage.
