Indian lesbian wedding: Seema & Shannon, step ahead for freedom

Indian lesbian wedding: Seema & Shannon

Indian lesbian wedding: Seema & Shannon

If you’re an Indian, second word along with the first one, somewhat raises morality issues. And this I can say without any doubt whatsoever. But as we hear our mom-pop say, the world is changing a lot, but changing to the extent that a girl is compelled to marry another girl?? What kind of love is this? (as they would say).

Respite to those Californian American-Indians who decipher the meaning of “Freedom” in completely new dimension (as contrary to webster’s definition).

On Sunday, Justice Anthony Kennedy rejected a last-ditch appeal in California and allowed same-sex marriages. That’s a breather for same gender couples who have been fighting since the regime of Bill Clinton (Facts).

While few couples were successfully able to register their licenses, others had to wait for one more day to vow to each other.

Getting up close and personal was a photographer Steph Grant who got a chance to click Indian Lesbian Wedding of Seema & Shannon. It must have been a treat for him to click two varied yet enriching cultures. Here’s what he had to say:

“I have been anticipating this wedding for years now! Shannon and Seema are special to me and I am honored that they chose me to be their wedding photographer. I flew into Los Angeles a few hours before the wedding festivities began. I was greeted by a house full of friends, family and a lot of laughter. It was going to be an exciting day. Beautiful Indian culture, stunning brides & style for miles! Couldn’t ask for more. I have photographed Indian weddings before and I have photographed gay and lesbian weddings before, but never have I ever shot an Indian lesbian wedding. WOW. My heart! There was so much love that consumed the SmogShoppe that evening. Friends and family came pouring in with smiles, hugs and tears… these two are clearly loved and in love. I am writing this blog a month after the wedding and I am proud to say that so much progress has been made in our country with the Supreme Court striking down DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) and Prop 8 in California! Love wins. ALWAYS. Congrats Shannon & Seema. Love you guys! “.

I’m sure my dear friend Himanshu (Sparklin) would have loved to click this wedding too. In fact every photographer would love to capture such an event. Wait, am I adding morality to freedom?

    Romans chapter 1

    24 WhereforeGod also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

    25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the
    creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

    27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is
    unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error
    which was meet.

    28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness,maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity;
    whisperers,

    30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

    From Revelation (Bible) The final Judgment

    Chapter 18

    1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.

    2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is
    fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold
    of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.

    3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and
    the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the
    merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her
    delicacies.

    4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her
    plagues.

    5 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.

    6 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.

    7 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.

    8 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.

    9 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived
    deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they
    shall see the smoke of her burning,

    10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great
    city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

    11 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:

    Dear all….. in ignorance

    Do not Sin against the will of God. His WRATH will be very terrible when sinner stand before Him for final Judgement. Repent and come to HIm (Jesus Christ, the true savior who died for your sins. Satan will lead you in darkness but Jesus will lead you in light

    BEWARE

    “The Wage of SIN is death not physical but eternal death and gift is burning in fire of lake”
