Doug Irving over at the Orange County Register has an updated web story with a great photo slideshow to the right of the article. We will have additional LiberalOC coverage of the days events later this evening.
Our Conservative opponents against Gay Marriage never bring actual people into the equation.Ã‚Â The photo of this couple, together since the Eisenhauer administration, marrying yesterday in San Francisco places two human faces on what it means to have a loving and enduring relationship.Ã‚Â And no heterosexual marriages were harmed in the making of this photograph.
The women in the photo,Ã‚Â Phyllis Lyon, 84, left, and Del Martin, 86 on the right, were married at San Francisco City Hall. The couple has been together since the 1950s.Ã‚Â
Please, some conservative out there, please explain to me how allowing these two women to marry harms the institution of marriage?Ã‚Â How does it damage straight marriage?Ã‚Â
The Orange County Register reports that some 200 new marriage licenses are reserved for today.Ã‚Â Even the Register’s own poll showed support for 25 percent of all Republicans for Gay Marriage; its not scientific, but nice to know some of our right wing friends knuckles don’t drag on the ground when they walk.
