Don’t say Chick-fil-A wasn’t personal


Commentary

Scott J. Hamilton
On the evening of Aug. 1, the day of the Mike Huckabee/Sally Kern Chick-fil-A love fest, a young man walked into my office and sank into a chair. He rubbed his eyes and said he’d never felt as persecuted as a gay man as he did that day.

Marriage equality is up for grabs


Letters to the Editor

Wanda Jo Stapleton
“Equal Justice Under Law” is engraved on the front of the U.S. Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C. To me, the phrase — when applied to marriage — means “marriage equality,” both same-sex marriage and heterosexual marriage.

Famed statistician (yes, that’s a real thing) Nate Silver, who correctly predicted the winner in all 50 states and the District of Columbia in last year’s presidential election, is at it again. In a March 26 post on his blog, FiveThirtyEight: Nate Silver’s Political Calculus, he posited that support for same-sex marriage is increasing steadily and that a majority of U.S. states will vote in favor of it as soon as 2016.

News

Greg Horton
The Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma last week published documents that allow for the blessing of same-sex unions in Oklahoma. Bishop Ed Konieczny said the materials — which include guidelines for clergy and an approved liturgy (order of service) — clearly state that the union is not a legally binding ceremony.

A giant step toward equality


Commentary

Scott J. Hamilton
Last week, I witnessed something I never expected to see in my lifetime. When I heard the ruling of the Supreme Court declare that the U.S. government can no longer discriminate against me or my friends, I wept. Now, at last, my marriage to my husband will be recognized in our own country.
