Re "The man who may decide the future of gay rights (Forum, March 24): Gays and lesbians should have all the benefits given heterosexuals. As a social worker, I am aware the gays and lesbian are less likely to be child abusers than heterosexuals and would be more likely to have emotionally healthy families. Gays and lesbians pay taxes, serve in the military and on juries. How can it be fair that they do not have equal marriage rights?
