A More Perfect Union, Indeed

I know I owe you all a much longer update, which I’m hoping to get to this weekend. In the meantime, join me in being overjoyed by today’s Supreme Court ruling guaranteeing the right to same-sex marriage.

Love– no matter where you find it– is a beautiful thing.

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. –Justice Anthony M. Kennedy

    I am just catching up on everything. WordPress on my phone is a hot retarded mess.

    I’m so hoping you’re doing better since spending the weekend in. L & D. Looking forward to the update.
