Wilt thou have this man to thy wedded husband, to live together after God's ordinance in the holy estate of Matrimony? Wilt thou obey him, and serve him, love, honour and keep him, in sickness and in health; and, forsaking all other, keep thee only unto him, so long as ye both shall live?Book of Common Prayer

What counts now is not just what we are against, but what we are for. Who leads us is less important than what leads us what convictions, what courage, what faith win or lose. A man doesn't save a century, or a civilization, but a militant party wedded to a principle can.
