Enough Rights?

May 18, 2008 at 8:59 pm Leave a comment

At my UU Fellowship this morning, a longtime couple, two women who are active and beloved in the community, stood up and announced they are getting married on June 21st.  People stood and cheered and cried (me included). And we serenaded them with a song called “Standing on the Side of Love.”

So many of us take for granted the option of getting married, mull over our thoughts of this institution and whether we want to “be a part of it.”  But how would we feel if we were told we could not be a part of it?  Not be allowed the same rights as our neighbors, family members and friends?  Would it take on different meaning then?  I bet so.

In my view, it is not enough, and we are not a truly successful democracy, until all citizens truly have equal rights.  On June 21, these women will exercise theirs in our fine state of California.  Hallelujah.
