Happy Valentine’s Day

Today is the Feast Day of St. Valentine, which may or may not honor Valentine of Rome. “It is said that he was martyred in about 269 during the reign of Claudius II, after having been arrested and imprisoned for marrying Christian couples who were then under persecution in Rome at a time when Christians were seen as a grave threat to civilization, to all the traditions that made the nation great, and to the natural order of things.” (Via Box Turtle Bulletin) So it’s an appropriate day for demanding justice. Dear Virginia: It’s not a matter of if we will see equality here, only a matter of when. We are never going away.
