DEAR ABBY: I hate you. How dare you support gay marriage? How dare you ruin the sanctity of marriage? — TWICE-DIVORCED REPUBLICAN

DEAR TWICE-DIVORCED REPUBLICAN:

I believe if two people want to commit to each other, God bless ’em. That is the
highest form of commitment, for heaven’s sake. … Women were once considered chattel, and slavery was regarded as
sanctioned in the Bible. However, western society grew to recognize
that neither was just. Canada, Belgium, the Netherlands and Spain have recognized gay marriage, and one day, perhaps, our country will, too."

DEAR ABBY: I still hate you. Why don’t you move to Canada? — TWICE-DIVORCED REPUBLICAN

DEAR TWICE-DIVORCED REPUBLICAN: I’m willing to move to Canada — as soon as you move to Iran. We’ll both be happier.
