A Personal Conversation About the Supreme Court Decision
My friend Barbara and I disagree on a number of things. We see religion very differently, for example. And I suspect we’ve got a some differences about economics and politics as well. But we’re neighbors, and she matters to me. And I think I matter to her.
Barbara has been very grateful for the recent Supreme Court decision about gay marriage, in part because she’s been with her partner Maureen for 18 years. She has posted about her support of the Supreme Court decision on Facebook and has been dismayed by some of the hateful rhetoric she’s received.
Recently she mades some posts on Facebook in light of the pain she’s experienced. After reading her post below I decided to respond. With Barbara’s permission (and Mary’s), I’d like to share the conversation. I’m grateful for these neighbors and these conversations.
