They Chopped Off Valentine’s Head For Being A Marriage Equality Activist

St Valentine post beheading.

St Valentine post beheading.

Valentine’s Day has a backstory.

Valentine became St. Valentine because, and this was news to me, he defied the culturally dominant Roman culture, fighting for his belief that Christians had the right to marry each other. He performed marriages repeatedly until the Romans went ENOUGH and chopped his head off.

He died serving love. Thus, cupids etc.

So… Christians were once a minority persecuted for who and how they wanted to marry.

This story would be even more interesting were there an ironic modern parallel involving Christians and a minority persecuted for who and how they wanted to marry.
