Re "Gay marriage is on a roll" (Page A1, June 27): Regardless of where you stand on Proposition 8, the state of California's decision to not defend the will of the voters in front of the Supreme Court is a loss and travesty for all voters in the state.

We rely on our elected officials to represent us and to put aside their own personal feelings on issues. The U.S. Supreme Court just told us that our voices are not important and unless we compel our elected officials to represent the majority of voters then our needs will never be represented.

-- Brian Haena, Folsom
