The Constitution Upheld

White House Rainbow

From the honorable Justice Anthony Kennedy:

The nature of injustice is that we may not always see it in our own times. The generations that wrote and ratified the Bill of Rights and the Fourteenth Amendment did not presume to know the extent of freedom in all of its dimensions, and so they entrusted to future generations a charter protecting the right of all persons to enjoy liberty as we learn its meaning.

It's a landmark day. Marriage equality for all.

To the pea-brained politicians and individuals who lack the empathy to embrace their fellow human beings in all their unique, random, and particular glory, take your bigotry and shove it.


Be still. Gather yourself. The thunder rolls away and there comes a clear dawn.

N. Scott Momaday
