Henry Rollins gets down to the honest truth about folks reaction to the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage.
Writing for LA Weekly, he offers this clarity:
There were no losers, in my opinion. To those who disagree with same-sex marriage because it offends their faith, I would say your beliefs are still yours to have. The wisdom, peace and clarity that faith has allowed you to have are still intact. No word of any religious text has been changed or its power reduced. There is a lot of room in America; it allows all to move freely.
All the wedding photographs popping up on the Internet should be enough to convince anyone that this was a great decision. Take Jack Evans and George Harris, for example — together for 54 years, in Texas of all places, finally able to get hitched.
I am looking at them now. The skies have not darkened with locusts and tomorrow there will be traffic. I do believe we will be OK.
