I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

QOTD: Interracial Marriage

via the daily dish,

"After gay marriage, the most religiously committed Americans will be effectively marginalized as a public force—because they cannot act or support the idea that gay unions are marriages. Such people will, if we lose the marriage debate, be treated the way we treat bigots who oppose interracial marriage. Imagine: All it will take to make, say, a judicial nominee unconfirmable will be to establish that they are indeed Catholic,"

Funny I remember how most of the arguments against interracial marriage were grounded in religious dogma and psuedo science as well, and opponents said much the same thing. And while, today, we view opponents of such marriages as bigots - we still let them refuse to perform or honour such marital arrangments in their own houses of worship even unto this day.
It's the first Amendment Maggie, get over it.
