Oppressive conservative thinking robs people of freedom

NORMAN — Editor, The Transcript:

Get it straight, nobody wants to follow you down the path regressing back into the dark ages of ignorance and religious persecution.

Under the guise of reducing divorce rates, you have spent millions of our tax dollars trying to make everyone fit into your narrow tolerance of what a relationship should be.

Oklahoma is the laughing stock of the nation because of these backward policies.

 Rather than an appreciation and respect for people's relationships and love for each other, anyone not fitting into your religious concepts are attacked.

No gay marriages here. Oklahoma will not tolerate tolerance. Apparently, the rights of privacy and the pursuit of happiness mean nothing to our right wing uptights.

Suddenly, couples who have been married for decades under common law are told they are what? Inferior? How dare you. These couples have a married life you could only hope for.

They have paid taxes as married couples, settled into their wonderful lives together. You plan on attacking these families? Very bad idea.

 These policies are destroying marriages, not embracing them. Who the hell do you think you are?

Get a grip on your own lives and leave everyone else alone. This is America, not Afghanistan.

If you want to know why Oklahoma leads the nation in most things bad, it is because the repression, suppression and oppression of Oklahoma policies leads everyone to depression.

Free people are happy people.
