It is a tribute to our justice system that the Constitutional rights for all have been upheld.
I hope that the value of equal rights for all, remains supreme.
To opponents, I point out: your church may not recognize gay marriage, however, marriage under the eyes of the law, which carries with it many rights and privileges under the law, MUST be recognized.
To set the law according to the standards of religion would be a clear violation of the separation of church and state - the Constitution doesn't just protect the rights we like. Liberty and Justice for all. Period.
I hope the Courts and fair-minded people of Goodwill will continue to share this clarity.
