Same Sex Marriage

       Statement of Madison Mayor Paul Soglin on U.S. Supreme Court Ruling on Same-Sex Marriage

The Supreme Court decision brings finality and justice so that all men and women can marry the person they love.  It's time to move on to ensure that all forms of discrimination are purged from our society – in the workplace, in school, in housing, and all public accommodations.

I absolutely agree with Justice Anthony Kennedy who states, "No union is more profound than marriage....  [Same sex couples] seek not to denigrate marriage but rather to live their lives, or honor their spouse's memory, joined by its bond."
