The Loving Decision

November 15, 2008
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and best-selling novelist Anna Quindlen writes, "The last word here goes to an authority on battling connubial bigotry. On the anniversary of the Loving decision last year, the bride wore tolerance. Mildred Loving, mother and grandmother, who once had cops burst into her bedroom because she was sleeping with her own husband, was quoted in a rare public statement saying she believed all Americans, 'no matter their race, no matter their sex, no matter their sexual orientation, should have that same freedom to marry.' She concluded, 'That's what Loving, and loving, are all about.'"[Link]
