It's so worth it just to see John Boehner's uncomfortable expression as he stands next to this all-American family. A victory for love!

To me the best solution to the marriage problem is to make all marriages civil unions in the eyes of the government, and then let people get a "real" marriage by a church official if they want to. My wife and I were married by a judge, no religion involved, and it suffices for legal purposes. We felt no need to have our civil union blessed by any particular religious organization.

Nice post; also: Hi- I'm your neighbor to the s/e, as Cong. Maloney is my rep.

Seitan, thanks, and welcome, neighbor. Glad you decided to de-lurk. I covet your representation.

Notice that you never see conservatives rejoicing when they strike down a Voters' Rights Act or impose more stringent abortion restrictions or deny people health care - they just go on to the next dastardly deed.


Boehnor looks like he swallowed his swizzle stick. Again.

Nice to see you here on the C& L site!
Insightful perspective on the 'so-called' powers that be and the intricate weaving of a Joy vs.Joyless approach to marriage, (same-sex..or not), along with the divisions which tend to separate...religious..or cultural. It's an introspective/personal reflection and I thank you for offering it. Also....glad you've "Evolved"!:-D
