History Will Judge Everyone

Someday history will look back on this period in our history and view those who insist on fighting to prevent same sex couples from marrying in the same way that history now views segregationists.
"I draw the line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of
tyranny, and I say segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever." -George C. Wallace

"I wanna tell you, ladies and gentlemen, that there's not enough troops in
the army to force the southern people to break down segregation and admit the nigger race into our theatres into our swimming pools into our homes and into our churches."-Strom Thurmond

Which side of history will you be on? Do you want to try to explain to your children and grandchildren that you where against giving same sex couples the same rights as everyone else?

"One day our descendants will think it incredible that we paid so much
attention to things like the amount of melanin in our skin or the shape of our eyes or our gender instead of the unique identities of each of us as complex human beings." -Franklin Thomas

"I believe marriage is between a man and a woman, and I think we ought to codify that one way or another,"-George W Bush

"The institution of marriage is under attack from extremist groups, they
have done it in Massachusetts and they can do it here."-John Thune

It's like Mark Twain could see into the future,
"All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is
sure."-Mark Twain
