LOVE IS LOVE
This morning the Supreme Court declared that same sex couples have a right to marry anywhere in the United States.
“This ruling is a victory for Jim Obergefell and the other plaintiffs in the case. It’s a victory for gay and lesbian couples who have fought so long for their basic civil rights. It’s a victory for their children, whose families will now be recognized as equal to any other. It’s a victory for the allies and friends and supporters, who spent years even decades working and praying for change to come. This ruling is a victory for America,” the president said. “This decision affirms what millions of Americans already believe in their hearts: when all Americans are treated as equal, we are all more free.”
Justice Anthony Kennedy, who authored today’s ruling legalizing same-sex marriage throughout the United States, is sometimes made fun of for his notoriously purple prose. But today he managed to close his opinion with one of the most beautiful passages you’ll likely read in a court case.
“The People’s Designer, an upcoming documentary focusing on Scott’s life and recent takeover at Moschino. The two-and-a-half-minute clip follows Scott from his rural Missouri upbringing to his down-and-out-in-Paris days sleeping in the Metro and trying to make it in design, to the excitement and anxiety backstage at his Moschino debut.”
Film Release on September 18.
