Young Man Supports Marriage Equality at Bar Mitzvah

A few weeks ago a young Jewish boy named Duncan McAlpine Sennett had his bar mitzvah. During his address to the people gathered he made a strong and eloquent statement in support of marriage equality. He said that he is a “very, very strong supporter of equal rights and the freedom of men and women to marry whomever they love” and that he is “proud to be part of a congregation that is 100 percent in support of same-sex marriage.” Video below the fold.

    Today, he is truly a man, and a good one at that.

    Can’t see the video while at work, but I figure the young man deserves an extra-hearty “Mazel tov!”

    This reminds me of a bar mitzvah I went to a few years ago (I was there for the other kid) where one of the boys got up and spoke beautifully about how he was an atheist, but the important thing was community and how the community needed to embrace their LGBT bothers and sisters. I was amazed. (And I felt bad for the next kid, who got to get up and talk about cucumbers.)
