A Rainbow Victory, A Rainbow Revolution!


On Friday, June 26, 2015, the US Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide. By this decision, all Americans, no matter their gender and sexual orientation, can now marry whoever they love.

The majority of the justices —Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer and Anthony Kennedy —held that the right for same-sex couples to marry the people they love is protected under the 14th Amendment, which guarantees equal protection and due process.

Following the landmark decision, In a nine-minute address in the Rose Garden, President Obama has expressed his satisfaction. He believes that “[t]his ruling is a victory for Jim Obergefell and the other plaintiffs in the case.  It’s a victory for gay and lesbian couples who have fought so long for their basic civil rights.  It’s a victory for their children, whose families will now be recognized as equal to any other.  It’s a victory for the allies and friends and supporters who spent years, even decades, working and praying for change to come.”

It’s a rainbow victory, a rainbow revolution. No one has the right to tell people who to love and marry. Such decision is personal and regards no one else but the persons involved. Just because you don’t like something does not make it unlikable for others.

Some are using Bible verses to corroborate their arguments of refute against the Supreme Court’s decision. These verses, in my humble opinion, should be kept and read to whomever gives a damn as the United States is a democracy, not a theocracy.

We need to stop infringing upon the rights of others and dictating them how they should and must live their lives.

What you choose to do with your life is your business. Do as you please so long as by your actions you do not make it impossible or difficult for others in society to enjoy their freedom –like you are enjoying yours.

Tolerance is everything in a democracy; it allows us to better understand the people who are different than us. And if we can understand them, we will be able to live in harmony with them, and that is in spite of our irreconcilable differences.

The Commonwealth of Virginia Stands For Gay Marriage



On Thursday, February 13, 2004, a federal judge declared unconstitutional the Commonwealth’s ban on same-sex marriage, making it the most recent state in the union to embrace and take a clear stand for marriage equality.

So I congratulate the Commonwealth for this important step, and I hope more states can follow suit.

As I respect everyone’s view on this matter, I do strongly believe that marriage is between two people who love each other, not between a man and a woman as the religious folks want to make believe.

Gender has nothing to do with marriage, which is simply a matter of the heart.

Gender matters only when procreation comes into play as, biologically speaking, there need to be a male and a female for reproduction to take place. But when it comes to marriage, it is more about love than gender.

People get married because of love, not because they want babies. So they don’t get married for procreation purposes. In fact, not all married heterosexual couples want kids. So the main purpose of marriage is to make both individuals feel loved, not to procreate.

I am a proponent of same-sex marriage just like I am a proponent of interracial marriage. I don’t think people should be going around telling other people who to marry. People should marry the person they love regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, creed and religious beliefs. That’s what I believe.
