When we are all treated as equals, we are all free. In a world in which gay and lesbian couples live openly as our neighbors, as parents raising children and as loving and spiritual beings who contribute fully as members of our global community, it is simply untenable to suggest that they can be denied the right of equal participation in the institution of marriage. This decision by U.S. Supreme Court grants gay Americans all rights under the law, and the equal protection that they deserve.
"It's always a banner day when right prevails over wrong; justice over injustice and truth prevails over ignorance,” said Rev. Dr. Kenn Gordon, Spiritual Leader for Centers for Spiritual Living. “Today evolution took a step in the right direction. It is a victory for the LGBTQ community. It is a victory for us all."
Centers for Spiritual Living and Science of Mind communities have always embraced people of all walks of life, nationalities, faiths and sexual orientation. We celebrate and applaud this momentous moment in history.
