I don't know why somebody else's marriage has anything to do with me. I'm completely comfortable with gay marriage...If he's pleasant to me on the street, if his children don't throw things in my yard, then I'm happy. It seems to me we're making issues of things that honestly ... don't matter. Elizabeth Edwards
And I just ran across this passage in Barack's book (yes, I'm STILL reading it!):
Perhaps I just find the ways of the human heart too various, and my own life too imperfect, to believe myself qualified to serve as anyone's moral arbiter. I do know that in our fourteen years of marriage, Michelle and I have never had an argument as a result of what other people are doing in their personal lives.Of course I wish he'd go further in support of equal rights for everyone, but I'm more and more committed to taking an active role in this next election. We can't assume anything based on the promising results of this midterm election and we can't afford to have things continue on the path they are on.
