Love wins! The Supreme Court decision and us

I stopped by The Stonewall on my way to church this morning, to see what was up. There were lots of reporters, and I talked to one: http://gothamist.com/2015/06/26/stonewall_gay_marriage_party.php
What I didn’t say to him, was that I saw Dean Ostrum’s widower walking past the bar as the crowd gathered. I thought of the brief time together Richard and Dean had together as a legally married couple, well into the long, loving relationship they had. I thought of other St. Luke’s (and other) couples “parted by death” who never did get to be legally wed.
Today, we celebrate. Some of us may struggle with staying Christlike in our responses to our enemies. But, let us all remember _everyone_, living and dead, who helped bring our country to this place.
