Bride in Front-Page Gay Wedding Story Dies of Brain Cancer

A couple of weeks ago, the Laurel Leader-Call in Mississippi ran a front page story celebrating the first-ever gay wedding ceremony in the area (even if the marriage was not legally recognized):

There’s some sad news to report: The couple in the picture were Jessica Powell and Crystal Craven (in the hat) and, on Monday, Craven died from a brain tumor. She was only 34:

Powell said that, even though it was a sad decision to make, Crystal decided not to go through chemo again. She said: “Crystal told me that she was tired of hurting, tired of being sick and tired of fighting.”

Speaking of their wedding day, she said: “My vow to her was forever, not until death do us part.”

That’s true love.

And that’s a relationship many Christians think irreparably harms the institution of marriage.

If only every couple could be so lucky to cause that much damage.
