    I hadn’t even noticed the use of ‘deleterious’. Scalia really is a huge blemish on that court.

    Those guys look like terrific parents. I’d love to have them around in my life.

    This is a beautiful vid of a beautiful family…..selfless devoted love.

    As for Scalia, it’s too late for him; he went over to the Dark side long ago….and his name will live and he will be remembered
    as simply an ugly individual in every sense.

    They have a beautiful family. Many of the gay couples I personally know who have adopted children have done as these two men did and raised children who, for one reason or another, were considered unlikely to be adopted. I don’t mean to imply that is the only value gay couples have as parents, to take in children no one else seems to want, but they have “stepped up to the plate” for children of neglect and abuse. And that’s no small thing, it’s a transcendent act that benefits everyone concerned. It’s beautiful in a way so few things are.

    Scalia doesn’t seem all that inclined to rule positively in cases that will benefit African-Americans either, so I don’t see this having any result on him at all. He’s a bigot, no matter which way you slice it.

  5. Wilberforce says

    I only wish the media would show such people, instead of the self-involved dingbats they always show. It’s a disgrace that these angels had to put themselves forward. HRC and the rest of our so-called leadership should have been parading them in front of the court from day one.

    What beautiful role modes for young gays and lesbians! Bravo, gentlemen, for saving the world a little at a time!

  7. Leroy Laflamme says

    What Wilberforce said. And ‘These children have done more for us than we have for them’ – that warms my heart!

  8. Francis says

    So beautiful. Powerful. Touching. Love. Amazing family, great kids, two awesome dads. How can you not be inspired :)

    Yet it’s ILLEGAL and a crime for them to be allowed to get married in 40 states. This country is not a free country. It claims to be, but it has all kinds of oppressions in place.

    Homosexuals don’t think straight.

    Homosexuals expect the Supreme Court to change the foundation of civilization as we know it (marriage), and at the same time tell millions of voters in California that they are hateful bigots for approving Prop 8.

    Homosexuals expect the Supreme Court to disenfranchise the majority of voters in California and over-ride the Rule of Law that allows Californians to amend their Constitution.

    President Obama is pro-abortion and pro-guns. Pro-death. Pro-erosion of Faith. “President Obama declared his support for same-sex marriage during his re-election campaign. Voters in Maine, Maryland and Washington legalized gay marriage, and Minnesota voters rejected a statewide ban. Rather than remaining on the sidelines in the California debate, the Obama administration came out forcefully last month against the ban and decided to help argue the case in court.” (USA TODAY, March 26, 2013)

    An amazing story of Love and dedication. They are blessed by every standard of excellence and “whole-i-ness”!
    This letter and video need to go viral and win more hearts and minds to counteract the negativity of Justice Scalia.

    Thanks so much for posting this!

    These two gay guys are super heroes. They are an asset to their community as well as their family. Dare I say they are an asset to the District as well as the United States. They’re as brave as any soldier who has served this country.
    My hope is that the SCOTUS takes into account ALL types of families. Not only do ALL committed couples need federal protections, but their children deserve this as well.
    Thank you Jack and Kelly for your shining example and inspiration.
    Equality for ALL.

    @Jean-Jacques Burlamaqui:

    Homosexuals don’t think straight, they think right!

    Gays think about the big picture, and the big picture is what is right for all, not just the sometimes crazy, uninformed, uneducated, selfish, can’t think for themselves, lemming masses.

    And yes, we do EXPECT the SCOTUS to disenfranchise the millions of California voters who were duped by the “Church” into discriminating against the few.

    I can assure you that allowing gays to marry will have zero effect on your marriage or your rights.

    Heterosexual marriage is not the foundation of society. And for thousands of years gays have been fathers and mothers be it unknown to their spouses or their children. It just wasn’t talked about is all.

    You are a sham to your namesake if that is really your name.
