Joseph and Joshua were free to marry. The Supreme Court Ruling on June 26, 2015 stated that the Constitution protected gays and their right to marry. Gay marriage was now legal in all of the United States.

Just in time for July 4th celebrations, Joshua and Joseph married. They lived together for 23 years and now they were legally married.

Joseph said, “… at last we were free… like the country. Let’s go to the fireworks tonight. Let’s celebrate!”

And so with sparklers and lawn chairs in hand they celebrated Independence Day for the US and for Gays.

 


Footnote…

The ruling by the Supreme Court is a landmark decision to change history forever for gay marriage as did the signing of the Declaration of Independence for our freedom from England and the signing of the Civil Rights Act on July 2, 1964 that prohibited discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin by federal and state governments.

I commend  and thank the United States Supreme Court for upholding…

FREEDOM AND LIBERTY FOR ALL.
