I am moved by how the nation of Ireland voted overwhelmingly to stand tall for marriage equality. They lead the world with 62% of the voters supporting equality and civil rights—almost a 2:1 vote in support.
Someone seems to be annoyed that I would draw attention to the extreme conservative view that the riots in Boston are wrong but the extremists’ desire to wage anarchy in the US if the SCOTUS passes marriage equality is right.
