all men created equal

An 86-year-old veteran in Maine explains what he fought for in WWII: for freedom of equality, that everyone should have the right to marry.

As a Christian man, I believe that marriage is a sacrament of the Church, beyond the reach of politics and public policy. The practice of that sacrament is a subject for the conscience of the church. The government has no right to influence that sacrament in any way. The function of the government is to ensure that all citizens have equal rights and access to due process of the law.
