Many of us have been in the marriage equality war for a long, long time.
I remember a drag queen host taking the microphone at San José Pride about a dozen years ago. She saw a group with ‘Freedom to Marry’ t-shirts, and with a twinge of sadness remarked: ‘Oh honeys, they are NEVER going to let us get married, ever. You may as well give that one up right now.’ She was wrong.
As in all wars, there is a foe. In the United States the foes tend to call themselves ‘Christians’ and root their obsessive opposition in their particular interpretation of the Bible.
