I consider following up with the words Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. famously used, "The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." But I suspect K-Bird's too young to understand that. Then again, maybe he isn't.

With the overturning of DOMA, it will simply be easier for states to embrace marriage equality and move past intolerance. It now becomes harder to push anti-gay policies, because there is no incentive to do so under federal law. Today is a dark day for the forces of anti-gay bigotry.

I Do Gay Marriage

Nobody ever can or should be mandated to perform a religious act -- including officiating at a wedding. Want proof? Ask most Rabbis about doing an interfaith marriage. So, these conservatives who have planned to defy SCOTUS on DOMA are within their theological right (and rites) to refuse. However, there are thousands and thousands of clergy who feel that our religious rights (and rites) have been inhibited by DOMA and laws that limit the legal implications of the marriages we have performed between same sex couples. Today is a clear victory for religious freedom as it maintains the rights of clergy who say 'I Don't' to gay marriage, but liberates those of us who say 'I do.'

The story of the untimely ending to Shane and Tom's love is heartbreaking. It doesn't matter what one's sexual orientation is; love is love, and loss is loss. The urgent underlying message in the story of Shane and Tom is that they had no legal means of legitimizing their relationship.
