Hail Libertas, Hail Justica,
Hail Holy Antinous,
Hail all The Holy Powers,
Hail to My Queer Forefathers and Formothers back unto the Begining,
Thank you, thank you, Ten Thousand Thank Yous!
I am ecstatically happy to see New York having added itself to the roster of States that support Marriage Equality. I am joyous for my Queer Brothers and Sisters and Siblings of All Sorts who are experiencing one of the most celebratory Prides of their lifetimes.
The population of New York is greater than the COMBINED populations of the other 5 States where Marriage Equality exists… well, you can search for background information…
But I just feel this overwhelming sense of joy and a tear-filled hopefulness that I as a Gay man might see true legal and social equality in my lifetime. I am also tearful because it has struck home for me how long I had simply accepted that on some level I might not live long enough to see that full equality.
I shall wrestle with that, and with some of the other thoughts and feelings that this victory is awakening in my Soul, then I shall look for ways to stand up to Invoke my Rights and seek what I can do to lay hands on the Moral Arc and give it a push in the direction of Justice and Equality…
