The recent Supreme Court ruling that the U.S. Constitution provides same-sex couples the right to marry is an historic victory not only for gay and lesbian Americans but for all Americans who cherish equality, liberty, and justice for all.
Reassuringly, this ruling bears witness that “equal justice under law”—words that are etched into stone on the front of the Supreme Court—has at long last triumphed over discrimination and inequity.
With the landmark ruling, same-sex marriage now becomes legal in all 50 states. My guess is we’ll get used to it in no time.
