A small bit of hope in this bigoted struggle:
“I saw with so many of the gay couples, they were so devoted to another. I saw so much love,” he said. “When this hearing was over, I was a changed person in regard to this issue. I felt that I understood what same sex couples were looking for.”
I think this gets to the heart of the issue. It seems like it’s very easy to sit far away from real people and keep your head in the sand on the issue of gay marriage. But, when you actually meet and get to know real people leading their lives, you realize the differences are few and far between. They have normal jobs. They have normal hopes. Normal dreams. Normal petty fights with their partner over who was supposed to take the trash out. They lead normal lives.
Just. Like. You.
