There was a really lovely quote posted and I can’t now find it. It basicly was a quote taken from some literature that was related to Prop 8 in California. My fiance and I would like to add it to our programs. We feel so strongly that everyone in our family should have the same rights that we do to marry. Does anyone know what quote I might have seen?

Is it from the thread where a bee was asking about using them as part of table numbers and placing it strategically on some homophobic family’s table? I think that was a quote from a Supreme Court case, if I’m thinking of what you’re looking for. I’ll go link searching to try to pull up what I’m thinking of.
ETA: Here is the thread I was thinking of, with a quote from Goodridge v. Department of Health. Is that it?

@indibee: Wow…No, I hadn’t read that thread but thank you. Hmmm…gave me something to think about. I do like the quote that was refered to but the one that I was thinking of was a bit shorter if I am remembering correctly.
I might use this one or try to edit it down a bit….if I can’t find the original one.

@MassageBee: We had our officiant say something during our ceremony. We basically took a moment of silence for people who could not be present with us that day and for people who do not have the right to marry. It was borrowed from Mrs. Cherry Pies ceremony. People thanked us for putting that part in our ceremony because it meant so much to them too!

@MassageBee: If you find the one you were thinking of, please post it. Like @PitBulLover: we plan to make sure that our support of LGBT relationships is shown, and since that’s not too common of a sentiment around here yet, I really want to do it in an intelligent and well-spoken way that’s non-offensive but clearly states our beliefs and shows our support.

@PitBulLover:I really like that idea! I didn’t want to be all in your face about it or hurt anyone’s feelings, but I do want something subtle. 🙂

I FOUND IT!!!!!
“The opportunity to establish an officially recognized family with a loved one and to obtain the substantial benefits such a relationship may offer is of the deepest and utmost importance to any individual and couple who wish to make such a choice.”
The quote is from In re Marriage Cases, 183 P.3d 384 (Cal. 2008), which is the case in which the California Supreme Court held that marriage was a fundamental right under the state constitution and that the denial of such a right to same-sex couples was unconstitutional. This ruling was invalidated by the recent passage of Prop. 8.
