Ellen and Portia marry, Thomas Jefferson gives a thumbs up

From a quotation on the Jefferson Memorial:
"I am not an advocate for frequent changes in laws and constitutions, but laws and constitutions must go hand in hand with the progress of the human mind. As that becomes more developed, more enlightened, as new discoveries are made, new truths discovered and manners and opinions change, with the change of circumstances, institutions must advance to keep pace with the times. We might as well require a man to wear still the coat which fitted him when a boy as civilized society to remain ever under the regimen of their barbarous ancestors."

Too bad our the Christian terrorist whackjobs only believe in twisting the words of holy texts and our forefathers for their own benefit.
