Quote Of The Day - Rep. Jim Langevin

"As the debate about same-sex marriage continues in Rhode Island and in Washington, I have taken time to reflect carefully on my own position. Based on my own experiences and my firm belief that all Americans should be treated equally under the law, I am now convinced that affording full marriage equality rights to same-sex couples is the only fair and responsible approach for both Rhode Island and the nation. If our nation expects to provide equal protection to all, then our civic institutions must reflect that noble goal." - Rep. Jim Langevin (D-RI), announcing his change of heart in a Providence Journal essay titled, "Now IS the time to redefine marriage."
