Common sense has prevailed in America. Brilliant.
Brilliant for the couples who can now cement their love for each other when they’ve previously been forbidden.
Brilliant for the couples who will now enjoy equal rights around insurance, welfare and health in relation to their partners.
Brilliant that a few rogue states with delusions of power have been firmly put in their place and over ruled.
Brilliant that the Whitehouse was bathed in multi-coloured lights to celebrate such a momentous decision.
Brilliant that Niagra Falls followed suit.
Brilliant that President Obama tweeted about it.
Brilliant that Twitter had a hashtag with a rainbow heart.
Brilliant that Facebook had an app to change your profile picture to a rainbow version.
Some great stories about bigoted pastors who vowed to set themselves on fire if same sex marriage became legal…
…who then furiously backpeddled because he didn’t really mean it (roll eyes).
Americans who planned to move to Canada if the law changed (Canada legalised same sex marriage in 2005)
But this story here, with pictures, sums up what it’s all about – marriages that took place immediately after the ruling that would have previously been impossible.
Who can deny love like this?
Of course the fact that a decision got made by 9 individuals in the Supreme Court is ridiculous. But that’s a whole other story. Had the decision gone the other way then I’d have been more vocal about the process.
All that matters is that love wins.
