Today the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act, known as DOMA, stating it discriminated against same-sex couples.
Then they declined to rule on California’s Proposition 8 which prohibits same-sex marriage, leaving in place a lower court’s decision that struck-down the ban.
From a pagan perspective:
It is important to note that Pagan Metaphysics strives for peace and harmony within the Divine Universe and within the individual being. Through mutual respect and acceptance we can discover and acquire peace for all and create a world that is harmonious for everyone. But this approach does not take away the choices of individuals to direct their own lives with free will and the acceptance of the consequences of those choices. ~ an excerpt from Pagans and Politics.
