"Supreme Court Declares Same-Sex Marriage Legal in All 50 States"
and this (from Hilary Clinton's Facebook page and now all over the internet)
I am SO HAPPY FOR SO MANY PEOPLE!!!
This morning, the Committee on Marriage was meeting while the Supreme Court decision came out. There were folks raising hands to speak and inform everyone. When the information was read, there was some applause and then a moment of prayer. Someone suggested that the hearing adjourn because it was an intensely emotional moment and many needed to make calls to family and friends as well as write press releases etc. So many people here are extremely elated by the decision, but there are many who are not. All seem to be handling it very well and respectfully, but this will surely spark and change some conversations in the Marriage Committee. I can't wait to see what will happen with Liturgy & Music and Marriage Committees. Here is the link to A037, the resolution to Continue Work of the Task Force on the Study of Marriage.
