"[...] as an Orthodox rabbi who does not officiate at same-sex marriages [...] My 'side' did not lose, because my side is never defined by any one position on a matter of ritual or liturgy, no matter how important that matter may be. My side, I hope, is God's side, and the God in whom I believe is infinite -- bigger and more complex than can be reduced to any single decision, or even any single tradition, for that matter." -- Rabbi Brad Hirschfield, "I am an orthodox rabbi who doesnât perform gay marriages, but I celebrate today's Supreme Court decision", 2015-06-26
"In a nation where fewer and fewer people are choosing to marry, and choosing to marry much later when they make the choice at all, today's decision defends traditional marriage, at least as much as it redefines it." -- ibid.
