Today, June 26th 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that it is legal in all 50 states for all Americans, no matter their gender or sexual orientation, to marry the people they love. I felt the need to post a little something about this, as we should celebrate & applaud the Supreme Court’s decision. What a truly incredible victory for Gay Rights activists who have fought so long for this and for all the people that this will positively affect. It’s an amazing win. Marriage equality is something that I strongly believe in. Everyone deserves the right to marry. I’m extremely proud to be an American today.
“No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.”
