George Takei’s Response to “20 Young People Who Believe Marriage Should Be Between a Man & a Woman.” {Pictures}

“Our adversaries call their campaigns ‘in defense of marriage’ or ‘in protection of marriage.’ Why are they so defensive and protective? Are their marriages so fragile?” ~ George Takei

Oh, how I love George Takei—who has become, perhaps, this Nation’s most-outspoken (and brilliantly cheeky) advocate of same-sex marriage.

This was his reply to the article, “20 Young People Who Believe Marriage Should Be Between One Man And One Woman“—in one word, it is simply brilliant.

Thank you, George Takei!

And can we please just recognize all of these most beautiful expressions of love in this world?

My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find the majority

of your post’s to be just what I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content

for yourself? I wouldn’t mind composing a post or elaborating on a number

of the subjects you write about here. Again, awesome web site!

“Among people who believe that there is only one truth-and they are in possession of it-tolerating other points of view is, by definition, impossible.” – Hella Winston (from her book Unchosen The Hidden Lives of Hasidic Rebels)

George is one cool cat! He has lived through some of the worst eras in regards to racism and still has a sense of humor.
