    Sniff, sniff – so happy for them and all the other beautiful people who can now marry the one they love.
    I AM really surprised though that when the church’s response was read that NOBODY said anything about: “The Church has been consistent in its support of TRADITIONAL marriage while teaching that all people should be treated with respect.”

    Traditional marriage would not include polygamy, polygyny, polyandry, illegal marriages etc. How can they say that with a straight face? I couldn’t even read it with a straight face. I’m absolutely gobsmacked that they have the chutzpah to say it with their history of those things.

    However, I’m feeling the love for Seth and Michael – Congratulations guys. I’m so happy for you.
