Letter: Ruling is win for individual rights over government
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Conservatives win big with Judge Robert Shelby's ruling that opens the doors to gay marriage ("Judge denies AG's request to halt same-sex marriages," Tribune, Dec. 23).

Never again can big government trample the rights of people to marry as their conscience dictates. Nevermore shall a majority of so-called conservative voters, who approved Utah's constitutional amendment that defined marriage, be able to use government as the vehicle to trample the rights of people they don't agree with.

A double win for true conservative values. Amen!
