i love this quote!

This came from Michael Maroko, who is one of the attorneys arguing the case of Prop 8 in California.

Maroko said this to Justice Ming Chin in response to his question of whether the idea (that idea being the government should get out of the marriage business) “would solve the legal issues connected to gay marriage — issues that at their core revolve around the question of whether allowing some couples to marry but not others violates constitutional guarantees of equal protection under the law.”

Here’s Maroko’s quote:

“If you’re in the marriage business, do it equally. And if you’re not going to do it equally, get out of the business.”

I’ll drink to that!

Thanks to Patter Pensée for posting some of the Time article which gives me one of my now favorite quotes.

  1. One of the interesting things about marriage, and its history in western culture, is that for a very long time it wasn’t a religious ceremony. If I rightly remember the article I read, it’s only in the last thousand years of Christian history that the concept of a church ceremony takes hold, for the common folk.

    Maybe they had it right at first.

  2. I like that quote. A lot.
