I heart Massachusetts

As we approach the one year anniversary of the State of Massachusetts performing same-sex marriages, many things are being discussed, reviewed, and monitored.

I especially love the very last line in this article. It is always what you hear as a justification against allowing same-sex marriages, but it's really a load of bull.

“The institution of marriage has not crumbled in any way, shape or form.”

Conservatives are always wanting to shout about how same-sex marriage will ruin the institute of marriage, in some way. They tell you that your heterosexual marriage will somehow be invalidated, or threatened.

Nothing could be further from the truth. If anything, it makes it more meaningful, gives it more strength. Love is such a positive energy and when two people who love each other so much, they want to make it a legal, public declaration; a binding commitment that can't be easily disregarded... well, that's just amazing. That's encouraging. That's uplifting!

And that kind of positive energy flowing through our world, being added to over and over again, with each "I do" that is uttered, each tear of joy that is cried... well, that's so awesome and so beautiful that it fills me up.

Adding love to the world is never wrong.
