This won’t be eloquent.  It’s simply an expression of my sorrow, for all those who were told today that they aren’t people like other people:  they cannot marry the person they love.  It may be, as a matter of law, that the people of California have a right to change their constitution.  And I am relieved for those whose marriages, though threatened, were preserved by the ruling.  (I’m talking about the same sex couples people wanted to tear apart.)  But I am deeply saddened by a law, passed by a majority of our voting citizens, that takes basic human rights away from some of our citizens because they are different.  I can’t imagine God would approve.  I hope we change the law very soon.
