Since this is a blog about stories from the margins, I will tell you about my grandson, who after eight years with his girlfriend/wife realized that he is gay.  After they divorced, he found someone, a man, with whom to share his life.  I ached when the Catholic Church led the way alongside the Mormon Church to deny the right for gay people to marry in the state of California.   I worked for the "No on 8" campaign because I believe that civilly they have every right to be married and that their love and commitment is a valid as that of a man and a woman.  – HB
