What has been won in the courts can be taken away: LGBT rights

Becky Wegner RommelWith the recent US Supreme Court ruling in favor of marriage equality, many feel elated but the fact remains a lot of Americans remain sympathetic to Becky Wegner Rommel who appears in the video below and while her rant is probably the very definition of manic and easy to giggle at while watching – let’s remember this woman votes.

Becky’s bat-shit crazy rant should serve as a reminder that the 2016 Presidential election remains even more important to our community.

What has been won in the courts can be undone, and if Becky and those sympathetic to her get their way that is what will happen.  That’s why I don’t find this video funny.  I find it frightening.

Obama’s response to US Supreme Court ruling on marriage

If we are truly created equal then truly the love we must commit to each other is equal too.” – President Barack Obama

No longer is there such a thing as ‘gay marriage’ it is now simply marriage.  Yet, I can’t fathom how this may have played out or what kind of response a Republican President would have given.  I’m also bracing for the inevitable diatribe from those running in the Republican primary, but for this weekend I’m simply enjoying the moment and I hope that you will as well.
