My LGBT friends deserve marriage equality as much as my spouse and myself.

I believe in marriage equality. Since John Clarke received the original 1663 charter from King Charles II it was the first time a sovereign king had ever given to any of its protected territories the right to have a separation of church and government. Never before had this been done. Never before had it been entertained. So this was revolutionary. Some may argue it was the precursor to the First Amendment to the Constitution. Thus I think that it is fitting that Rhode Island join the rest of New England states in recognizing marriage equality. Here in a “lively experiment” in Rhode Island providing “a full liberty in religious concernments”.

Marriage makes a difference. We have been together 26 years and were legally married in 2008.

If your opposition is Biblically based, read the Sermon on the Mount for the enlightened view.

This is the United States of America. Any one that opposes the value of equality doesn't belong in our Government. It is Ok for her to have her personal views, but personal views should not be impossed on all people.

The rest of New England has accepted marriage equality. It's a shame that RI is lagging behind.

Equality happens at birth. Only then do some prejudices, some hatreds, some ignorance, some unfounded and unplumbed tradition begin imposing man-made inequality. Some try to drag God into that imposition. Doesn't really work: God is too big to be used as a fig leaf. This bill needs to come to the floor and pass. Lots of people (and God) are watching...
