Justly Married

— Being a moral person, a good person, is not about having an ideology, or the ability to deploy arguments in justification of what one has done, or what one believes. It is to a large extent about feeling the right thing at the right time. Look at these pictures of couples recently married in San Francisco. Look at the love and the joy in these people’s faces. Now try to tell me–try to tell yourself–that this is wrong, that these people are wrong. If you can do it, then there’s just something wrong with you: you’re morally broken.
