Everything’s Coming Up Rainbows: Love Now Legal Nationwide
Friday, June 26th, 2015: a historical mile marker for the United States. Courthouses across the U.S. are now open for business, serving straight AND same-sex marriages. Here are some of our favorite (and least favorite) reactions, stories and tweets:
God @TheTweetOfGod: “If the Founding Fathers were alive today they’d all start marrying each other.”
Slate.com reports how Fox News reacts – We can only watch and wince, almost feeling bad for them.
Yes, finally. A passionate, conservative voice of reason. Thank you, CNN contributor S.E. Cupp.
The GOP Candidates’ Responses
We don’t get it either. The best part about what they think? It doesn’t matter anymore!
P.S. Our “favorite” (as in “least favorite”) here: it’s a draw between Mike Huckabee and Rich Santorum.
The Rainbow-Lit Whitehouse
What a beautiful beacon of hope! The light after the storm and exactly what a rainbow is all about.
Tim Cook’s tweet hits the nail on the head — love, as with marriage, is all about perseverance.
“Today marks a victory for equality, perseverance and love.” — Tim Cook
Ellen DeGeneres. Let’s face it: anything she says is amazing and we love her.
“Love won. #MarriageEquality” — Ellen DeGeneres
Dan Savage, you count twice for these tear-jerker Tweets.
“1/2. Telling my parents I was gay in 1980 didn’t just mean telling them that I was sexually and romantically attracted to other boys.” — Dan Savage
“2/2. I was also telling them that I would never have children and that I would never be married. That was then. This is now.” — Dan Savage
Here’s to Vinicius Vacanti for hitting two birds (or should we say four old dinosaurs?) with one stone:

It was a 5-4 ruling: Men 4-2 against, Women 3-0 for. Another reminder of benefits of women in leadership positions pic.twitter.com/SP69sBAL9J
