  6. Congratulations to the happy couple and an even bigger Congratulations to The State. That is the most respectful, complete and equal wedding announcement for a gay couple that I have EVER seen in ANY publication, including the New York Times or any other progressive newspaper.

  7. Of course the paper will be blamed for every hurricane, tornado, bolt of lightning and inconvenient shower that hits the state for the rest of the year.

  9. Wow, I live here in SC and this is SCANDALOUS! Congrats guys, you're smart for staying up there in NY. I'm pleasantly suprised (shocked really) and proud of The State for running this.

  11. Nice, but I'm guessing the tipping point here is newspapers desperate for money.

  12. What a wonderful announcement, especially in South Carolina. The fact that their two sons were their Best Men was very moving. Mozel Tov!

  13. And don't forget the nice touch that "they were both commissioned officers in the U.S. Army." Good gracious, I do hope the paramedics in town were alerted to prepare for extra calls on Sunday.

    There are days when I despair of this country, then every once in a while you see something like this and think, "well, maybe things will work out." Hooray!

  14. Kev, why would you 'never have guessed' that the two men pictured are an interracial couple?

  15. Congratulations and this is great example of things do get better indeed!

  16. Happy for them. Congrads to you both and many happy years together:)

  17. WHAT THE HELL DOE RACE HAVE TO DO WITH THIS?? GAY WHITE MEN ALWAYS HAVE TO TRY AND GET "DIGS" AT OTHER PEOPLE ( WHEN YOU ARE THE ONES THAT NEED THE SUPPORT OF OTHER GROUPS) BUT SAY SOMETHING ABOUT YOU....YOU FALL OUT SCREAMING AND HOLLERING!!!! YOU GUYS NEED TO GROW UP...AND VERY DAMN FAST...

  18. Interracial gay wedding announcement? In a south carolina paper? You don't say!

    Have heaven and earth switched sides?

    Posted by: Mark | Aug 2, 2011 11:02:03 PM


  19. The paper published it for the sake of gossip. Congrats guys you are very brave.

  20. Perhaps a better headline would have been: South Carolina Paper Prints Miscegenated Gay Wedding Announcement.

  21. Happy events, congratulations

  22. I would be kind of ashamed of being the son, father, brother, or any other relatives of one of those gay couples.
