Everyone's heart should be fuller after they have read this wonderful story. Their wedding announcement was in Sunday's NY Times. Sometimes love, indeed, is all you really need.

Looks like the homophobic trolls have been at play with the "judge it" app.

What would you prefer?
Blood, gore, and guts?
Plenty of that. Move on.
I can't believe people who want to bitch about a nice story.

If you are all for "keeping your private life private", then why did you see fit to offer you private feelings on this article, especially in such a hurtful way?

This deserves to be passed on again and again:

"Having been rushed by ambulance to the hospital a number of times, there could be nothing worse than a radical-right person declaring us 'strangers to each other' legally — without the marital right of visitation," said Nolan. "We have now experienced all of what is currently available to us as a couple in this nation. If courage and intellectual awareness continue to evolve among policy makers in both church and state, even at the national level, we might experience even more justice deserved by LGBT people as church members and equal citizens."

My best wishes to both gentleman. It's nice to have a smile on my face before I turn in at night. This will help chase away the blues many times in the future.

Richard Nolan and Robert Pingpank, this is my wedding gift to both of you:

from the I Ching:

When two people are at one in their inmost hearts, they shatter even the strength of iron or bronze; and when two people understand each other in their inmost hearts, their words are sweet and strong like the fragrance of orchids.

Namaste, gentleman.
