MARRIAGE NEWS WATCH

WATCH: All The Best News Coverage Of The Prop 8 Victory

We’re still all aglow from the thrill of the last few days. Rallies! Proposals! A call from the President! What a week.

Now it’s time to take a deep breath, hug everyone, and relax for a few moments. After all, we’ve got a lot of work ahead of us to complete the journey to full federal equality.

But for now, let’s just bask in our accomplishment and enjoy a little San Francisco Pride this weekend. Then on Monday we can roll up our sleeves.

    Olson and Boise are heroes. I want their photos up, framed, and on the walls of every LGBT household. Just as Kennedy’s photo graced the homes of those, who were discriminated against, before us. Thank you AFER, Olson, and Boise.

    Roberta A. Kaplan (Robbie) the woman who represented Edie Windsor and Thea Spyer in the DOMA case should get her photo up in the LGBT households across the U.S.

    @1EqualityUSA: Is Ted Olson a hero since he helped anti-equality candidates while working on this case? Had his apparent GOP preferences won in CA and the White House the court cases could have played out a lot differently.

    On Constitutional issues, Ted Olson states our case very clearly. This is a law case. It surpasses parties, politics, pundits or, in the case of this post provided above, pests. He helped us win equality in California. I’m appreciative of his time and expertise. Mr. Olson believes equality is a conservative value.

    @1EqualityUSA: And yet his apparent GOP preferences who he supported could have defended Prop 8 and DOMA in courts undermining the work he did.

    But how dare anyone ask him about it.

    Sorry for disrupting blind hero worship.

    His faith in the law overrides the desires of the Republican party members, as seen this week. The GOP must evolve or go extinct. It’s thrilling to see them lose elections, however.

  • jeff4justice

    @1EqualityUSA: I agree. However he should be asked to account for donating to anti-equality candidates and helping Paul Ryan debate practice. And no major media or LGBT media dared to ask him and that’s a shame.

    jeff4justice, We got justice this time around and Olson helped us get it. Be happy and say thanks. The man is entitled to live his life, have his opinions, and vote for whomever he pleases. He was of the opinion that LGBT Americans were being treated unfairly and, for this, he fought hard to rectify it. We got justice, feff4.

    @1EqualityUSA: I can both be simultaneously happy and grateful and still question why he backed anti-LGBT candidates who could have completely undermined his efforts and also critique him for giving us Citizen’s United.

    By your logic, how dare you critique me. I started an LGBT group in one of the most hostile regions of CA for LGBTs and worked tirelessly for equality. Since your logic dictates anyone who’s helped work towards equality is exempt from critique for anything else then I guess I am exempt too. I mean, I am no Ted Olson but he’s no me either : )

    Thank you for your bravery in fighting for equality in an area of California that is hostile to LGBT.

    @1EqualityUSA: Thanks. It began 10 years ago this week: http://youtu.be/EOApOkHex6o – We were still talking about AB205 domestic partnerships back then – how quaint. And as one who put myself out in a public way, I was critiqued many times by both anti-gays and LGBTs. It just comes with putting yourself out there.

    But thanks and may definitive equality prevail everywhere.
