To the Editor:

Living in Oklahoma I see this as a giant victory, even bigger than one would think since Oklahoma is probably the reddest state in the union (“Oklahoma Marriage Ban Thrown Out, But Ruling Stayed Pending Appeal,” by Arthur S. Leonard, posted online, Jan. 14). I hope the appeal is folded in with the Utah appeal. I encourage everyone to read Judge Kern’s decision. Though it took him over nine years to rule, he evidently has been doing his homework and studying what other judges finding in favor of marriage equality have been writing.
