Marriage for Everyone

The parallels are obvious.

Last week on the 40th anniversary of the Loving vs. Virginia decision, Mildred Loving issued a rare statement.  In it she spoke of how she didn’t set out to make a statement but just wanted the right to live peacefully with the man she fell in love with.   She urged for all Americans to be able to enjoy the same freedom to marry, regardless of sexual orientation.

 I believe all Americans, no matter their race, no matter their sex, no matter their sexual orientation, should have that same freedom to marry. Government has no business imposing some people’s religious beliefs over others. Especially if it denies people’s civil rights.

Hopefully one day it can happen.  Maybe not on the 45th anniversary of the loving decision, but maybe the 50th or the 60th.
