There are 4 comments on POV: As Someone Who Identifies as Part of the LGBTQIA+ Community, Passage of the Respect for Marriage Act Feels Deeply Personal to Me

  1. “We are incredibly grateful to the members of Congress who led the charge to respect all marriages rather than defend some, to legislate not who we can love, but rather that we can love.” Well said. Thank you, Dean Chard!

  2. Thank you Dean Chard!

    No doubt the obvious irony it is lost on no one that the Supreme Court case which made (my) interracial marriage legal throughout the United States is “Loving vs. The State of Virginia”. But it does shine a bright light on this shameful time and place in our shared history in a way only irony can. Indeed, the cowardice of hate, especially when it is stitched into the fabric of our laws and dictates societal behavior, must eventually yield to the power of Loving (vs. the State of Virginia).
