I read that a couple of days ago! It is an amazing story – everyone should pass it around.

@2dBride:  Awesome!  Fiance and I are taking the same Government class in college right now.  For our grade, we have to do a Senate simulation and we have to work to try and change a law.  We are working on a fictional repeal of DOMA!   Our Professor was all excited that we’re marrying in Iowa (we told him since we’ll have to miss 2 days of school after Spring Break as a result)… he is already urging us to be the couple that brings about legal challenges back in Texas, so he can say he “knew us when”.  😉

I was so proud when Iowa (my home state) made same-sex marriage legal. What a beautiful story! I teared up a little…lol. Everyone, no matter their gender, should be treated with respect and dignity. I think it’s crappy that there are still states that do not recognize same-sex marriage and I hope it changes soon. Choose love. Celebrate love every day.

My nephew is gay and plans to marry his SO someday. I am majorly PO’ed as his parents already told him that they will NOT be attending the wedding! Like he’s still their son, why can’t they be happy for him? Darling Husband and I will most certainly be there to share in his happiness!

Homosexuality is only mentioned 6 times in the bible – 6 times in thousands of pages. Unicorns are mentioned more. There are so many things wrong with using the bible to persecute same sex couples and deny them rights (including the mixed fibers part you mention), I don’t even know where to start.

Thank you for sharing.  That story warms my heart and made me tear up.  Its about love and respect and what a beautiful story to show that.
