There was a point in time when our marriage would have attracted the audience of many a burning cross. Hell, if recent polls have any truth to them whatsoever, there are still places in this country where we would be judged. It’s such an alien concept to me, and every time I encounter a bigoted comment I have to snap out of it and realize that I’m not reading The Onion and they probably aren’t trolling… because those firehoses weren’t photoshopped, and people really did have to march and take up arms, and it really was only 12 years ago when “interracial” marriage was legalized in Alabama.
Now the cycle continues, and lo and behold, there’s never a shortage of people out there ready to “Preserve America”… again.
