In Sunday’s paper, The Virginian-Pilot editorial board came out in favor of legalization of gay marriage.
To deny marriage to any couple solely on the basis of the way they are born makes a mockery of America’s bedrock principles. To refuse marriage to gay people based on tradition or cultural norms elevates both above human rights.
It gives government too much authority over the most intimate relationship in an adult’s life without sufficient civil justification. If the NAACP and Obama’s endorsements were overdue, so is this one: Gay marriage should be legal across America, and it should be legal now.
At some point, I’m going to find all the right words to express what these declarations of support mean to me. But for now, just go over and read the editorial. And then read it again.
