This awesome kid, Daniel, has two dads. He wants them to be able to get married. Let's hope Justice Roberts listens.

The Argument To Overturn The CA Gay Marriage Ban Is So Easy A Kid Could Make It. Oh Wait, He Did.

This awesome kid, Daniel, has two dads. He wants them to be able to get married. Let's hope Justice Roberts listens.

Adam Mordecai

At :20, his dad sets the stage. At 1:00, Daniel starts making his case. At 1:23, he shares something tragic. At 1:58, he says something really important. At 2:51, he appeals to Justice Roberts' better angels. At 3:16, he closes perfectly. And at 3:43, he makes me guffaw a little.

If you agree with Daniel, you might want to like his family's page on Facebook. And if you want Justice Roberts to see it, I'd probably share this too.
ORIGINAL: By a nice adopted kid who happens to have two gay dads.

Great video, I wish the Supreme's would watch and consider their decision will affect so many that want nothing more than to live equally as all families. Got my heart too, Angie.

It's very sad to think that decisions that affect the whole country are based on the religion of a few, rather than the pure intent of the constitution.
