"And certainly, when society fails to tell your story, there is an unspoken message, that the story is not worth telling. [...] To love, that is the larger task which connects us all. That is the narrative to which I hope we all can strive. [...] And when two people love each one another, that in and of itself is a miracle and a blessing. [....] Love is by definition sacred. Not some love between some people, but all love between all people. How could anyone say that one person's love is more sacred than another person's? If it is indeed love, it is sanctified. If it is indeed love, the right to marriage is not questionable."
