Though they are at odds with many officials in their party, more than 100 Republicans have signed on to a legal brief urging the Supreme Court to declare that gay couples have a constitutional right to wed.
Deborah Pryce, a former member of the House Republican leadership, said last Monday, "Like a lot of the country, my views have evolved on this from the first day I set foot in Congress. I think it's just the right thing, and I think it's on solid legal footing, too."
God, they say you are timeless, constant, and never changing. And we are said to be made in your image. Yet at times like these we are clearly changing, malleable, and ever-evolving. And for this I am eternally grateful.
You speak to our hearts, and our values and priorities shift. We step out in faith, and we form new opinions and create new alliances. Our fixed identities are transformed, and we no longer fit into the boxes that we once did. May the world be better place because of it.
In the words of Martin Luther King, "The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." May this also be so in the souls of all Your children. As Dick Cheney is quoted in this article, "Freedom means freedom for everybody." May it be so in the lives of all Your children. Amen.
