Politics of marriage

A beautiful moment of quiet activism in the program for yesterday's wedding between my friends Penelope Freeh and Jack Dant:

As we symbolize and affirm our commitment to each other through this marriage ceremony we wish to recognize our family and friends among us who, due to their love for another of the same gender, are not afforded this right. We feel that love is love and no law should dictate the terms. We stand for their right to join together as we are doing today.
