New Jersey Teen Makes Heartbreaking Testimony for Marriage Equality (Video)
Just because Washington State freely decided to legalize same-sex marriage this week doesn’t mean that homophobes in New Jersey aren’t doing everything in their power to stop gay marriage from coming to their state.
Yesterday saw bigot after bigot testify before New Jersey’s House Judiciary Committee that gay marriage is the worst, anytime you get gay married you’re always hungry twenty minutes later, and gay marriage totally makes my arthritis flare up, and blah blah blah – Anything at all really to distract from the fact that the march toward marriage equality is about yes, EQUALITY.
Watch as 15-year-old Madison Galluccio brings the house down (and to tears) with her incredible plea to allow her fathers to marry. After the parade of lies and “religion” pushed out by the opposition, Madison’s short speech is a breath of fresh air.
My parents will be married, and I will make sure that this happens till the day that I die. So please, will you help me? Help me feel equal. We aren’t different. I’m not different. And I shouldn’t have to be forced to feel like I’m different. This is my family, and I want us to be able to have the same rights as you. So New Jersey, please give me my freedom.”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Thank you, Madison!
