As per the Washington Post:
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will become the first Supreme Court member to conduct a same-sex marriage ceremony Saturday when she officiates at the Washington wedding of Kennedy Center President Michael M. Kaiser.It's not an uncommon practice for Supreme Court Justices to conduct wedding ceremonies, but Bader Ginsberg is blazing the trail for her fellow Justices.
According to the WaPo article, she is very happy to be officiating.
“I think it will be one more statement that people who love each other and want to live together should be able to enjoy the blessings and the strife in the marriage relationship,” Ginsburg said.And, according to Bader Ginsberg, this is only the beginning:
“It won’t be long before there will be another” performed by a justice. Indeed, she has another planned for September.And a very kind word from Michael Kaiser:
As for Michael Kaiser, he told the Post: ”I can’t imagine someone I’d rather be married by (than Ginsburg).”Three Cheers for Justice Ginsberg!
