Today is an extraordinary day in our nation’s history. With the Supreme Court ruling that a state can’t deny same-sex couples the right to marry, all Texans will be allowed to celebrate their love and their families.
We have come so far in a relatively short period of time on the issue of same-sex marriage. But those in control of Texas refuse to join the 21st Century. They have already declared their intent to continue to fight on the wrong side of history. Their fight is futile because this ruling affirms the fundamental American ideal of equality under the law.
