Tweet of the Day: DOMA Dead
This is mine but there are many like it out there in reaction to the Supreme Court's ruling striking down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA):
Andrew Sullivan, one of the first to push for gay marriage, is your one-stop shopping today:
- Live-Blogging the SCOTUS ruling. Sullivan quote: “We did it in part for those we left behind. And part of the reason I am crying right now is remembering them. I want them to come to the party. I want them to see they didnít die in vain.” This link also includes Dan Savage's response to Huckabee's “Jesus wept” line.
- Tweet Reax, including church bells ringing in Minneapolis and the Seattle Gay Men's Chorus singing the National Anthem.
- Map of the Day: From legal ban and constitutional ban, to civil unions and gay marriage.
- I Believe. Sullivan: “Same-sex marriages have always existed because the human heart has always existed in complicated, beautiful and strange ways. But to have them recognized by the wider community, protected from vengeful relatives, preserved in times of illness and death, and elevated as a responsible, adult and equal contribution to our common good is a huge moment in human consciousness.”
