People say that love is the most magical thing on earth, but those people have clearly never eaten chilled grapes that were also really crispy.
When we started out in this case we said we were going to prove three things. We were going to prove that marriage was a fundamental right, and the other side accepted that. We said second that we were going to prove that depriving gay and lesbian citizens of the right to marry the person they love seriously harmed them and seriously harmed the children that they were raising, and even the opponents agreed with that. And third we said we were going to prove that allowing everyone to marry the person that they love regardless of sexual orientation did not, could not harm anyone and not only did the proponents on cross-examination have to accept that but today the United States Supreme Court said as much, because they said the proponents have no concrete injury. They cannot point to anything that harms them because these two loving couples and couples like them throughout California are now going to be able to get married.
