Re "Gavin Newsom was right about gay marriage" (Viewpoints, Feb. 11): It's arrogant of columnist Bruce Maiman to declare that the opponents of same-sex marriage were ignorant, only 10 years after the redefinition of an institution that has universally been understood to be between a man and woman in all significant cultures, societies and major religions.

We have no idea what the long term effects and unintended consequences of this purely political and emotional decision will be to our society and the sacred institution of marriage.
