Who would have imagined we would come so far so fast on marriage equality? Now to oppose it is to be to the right of Dick Cheney and Rob Portman. And that’s saying something.
USA Today did this perspective piece tracing the journey from the 1969 Stonewall riots to the President’s recent marriage equality endorsement as it heads to the Supreme Court — quoting one now-64-year-old Stonewall rioter, “The idea of marriage wasn’t even in sight [back then]. The Supremes, to us, were a singing group.”
Here‘s a column on Jeff Chu’s wedding, his parents’ failure to attend, and his book, Does Jesus Really Love Me?: A Gay Christian’s Pilgrimage in Search of God in America.
And here are “10 Reasons to OPPOSE Marriage Equality” — except that they’re satirical, as it’s not possible to construct logical ones. (Remember: we’re talking only about civil government-issued marriage licenses, not “holy matrimony.”)
And then there’s this: if you don’t allow marriage, meet the guys who’ll steal your girlfriends. Do you even KNOW the difference between hummus and baba ghanoush? They do.
