Happy Valentine’s Day, Soul Friends!
We really liked this blog we’re sharing with you today and its story of the REAL Saint Valentine. Valentine was imprisoned, and subsequently martyred, in the third century. His crime? Performing illegal marriages! It seems that under the laws of the Roman Empire, Christians were deemed unworthy of the rights and privileges of legal wedlock because of their immoral lifestyle. Well, I’m one Christian who was very happy to be able to legally marry my Valentine, of thirty-three years, in 2011—in a marriage ceremony that was illegal in my home state just a few months before (and still illegal in all but seven states, and still unrecognized by the Federal government). So here’s to Saint Valentine, and here’s to making marriage the legal right of all Americans!
