5 Great Videos From This Historic Marriage Equality Week
  • 1 of 2

This week history was made as, for the first time, the Supreme Court of the United States took up two separate marriage equality cases, a challenge to Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act.

Here are five videos from this week that you won’t want to miss.

 

1) Watch Thousands of People Rally for Marriage Equality Outside the SCOTUS

Advocates across the world turned their social media images red this week to support marriage equality, and many people expressed how much they would have loved to go to the marriage equality rally outside the SCOTUS in Washington, DC. Well, here’s a beautiful little video of one such rally. It’s not quite the same, but it might be the next best thing:

 

2) Bill O’Reilly Backs Marriage Equality–Say What?

Fox stalwart Bill O’ Reilly, who in the past has compared gay marriage to bestiality, surprised many this week when he said he wasn’t really that bothered about gay marriage and that he “wants all Americans to be happy.” Even more interesting, he called out marriage equality opponents for having nothing on their side other than bible thumping.

Cool, nice to see marriage equality actually becoming equal. It wasn't that long ago that inter-racial marriages were illegal too.

@Jean-Jacques B.

bas·tard
[bas-terd]
noun
1. a person born of unmarried parents; an illegitimate child.

By your own statement... then don't you believe that the Homosexuals fighting for marriage is then in the interests of the children? After all then by definition, if the homosexual parents are married the children are no longer bastards.

But based on your comment I believe you to be selfly against Same Sex Marriage... Am I right? I'm sure I am. Thus it is you who desire children to be bastards, not the homosexuals.

The film captures all the nuance of what may be the defining chapter in the history of the gay and lesbian struggle for equal rights.
