Default A Gay Congressman Marries

Blessings to Fmr Ariz Rep Jim Kolbe (replaced by Gabby Giffords) who will marry his longtime partner Hector Alfonso in Washington D.C. this weekend.

Many bi-national same-sex couples do not have the privilege in the U.S. to marry and protect their rights as a family to live together in the United States. Kolbe acknowledged recently in the press that he and Hector have that privilege due to Kolbe's access to the government but puts his support for a change in policy so that every other bi-national same-sex couple in the U.S. can be treated the same as other bi-national couples.

I wish them well and I pray for equal representation under the law (14th amendment) for all bi-national couples.
