A Brand New Day



A Brand New Day

"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." 

 - Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy

Well, I was pretty blase about the Supreme Court decision this morning when two co-workers asked if I'd heard the news. By the afternoon I was driving home and I caught the NPR report with a tape of the reaction on the steps of the court---and I sat in my driveway and cried for about 15 minutes...

And it is worth celebrating. Now, if only the extreme religious right-wing nut jobs would leave well enough alone... But, no. Gunfire attacks break up parties, and the Tea Party leaders spout off in the news about the "attack on religion" and how to amend the Constitution - not that they will succeed with that, but their rhetoric gets tedious.
