Now Virginia Really is for Lovers (but there are still haters out there)

Monday, October 6th, 2014

Inspired by Same-sex marriages begin in Virginia (WashingtonPost.com 10/06/14 14:48).

 

“We are officially married!!!!!!!!!!” – text from Kathryn Hamm of Arlington to her partner of 20 years after hearing the news

 

“There’s still 30 to 40 percent of Americans without marriage equality and millions, millions of people around the world who are suffering” — Jay Fisette, Arlington County Board chairman and the first openly gay person elected in Virginia

 

“Marriage will soon include polygamy, or threesomes, leaving innocent children to suffer the consequences.” — co-author of VA’s marriage ban state Del. Bob Marshall (R-Prince William)

 

At 1:20 p.m. today

Virginia started letting people marry gay.

 

Now, the motto is finally true:

Virginia is for same-sex lovers too.

 

Still, some haters remain,

Though increasingly just the misguided, or insane.

 

Will they continue on their irrational fears to dwell

And be sad when the things don’t happen that they foretell?

 

Sorry, Bob, but the Constitution everyone covers:

Virginia is for all lovers.
