Marriage equality granted limited victory in court rulings
Justice is being done
Hundreds of people appeared at the old Federal Courthouse in downtown Seattle on Wednesday, June 26, 2013, to celebrate the striking down of the Defense of Marriage Act by the Supreme Court. [John Lok, The Seattle Times.]
Martin Luther King Jr. preached, “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” [“Victories for gay marriage, but still not law of land,” page one, June 27.]
I celebrate this decision. There is more work to be done, but the wave of justice and history is one our side.
