Cleaver Calls Ruling a “Momentous Day” for LGBT Community

Kansas City Democratic Congressman Emanuel Cleaver:
“Ever since the wedding at Cana, Jesus taught us that the main thing and the plain thing was love,” said Congressman Cleaver, II. “Today that is still true. What a momentous day for the LGBT community, and for their friends and families who celebrate today across our great country. The Supreme Court has affirmed their humanity. As the majority opinion states, ‘No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family.’ This decision is a an important step toward ending the invidious indignity of discrimination faced by too many families, based solely on where they live and who they love. As a minister, it has been a privilege to preside over many marriages and civil unions, to usher two people down a path of love and devotion. Today, that path is open to all people, no matter who they love.”
