13-Year-Old Speaks Out In Support Of Marriage Equality At Bar Mitzvah

Tradition holds that 13-year-old Duncan McAlpine Sennett's Bar Mitzvah ceremony officially makes him a man, but we'd like to think that it's the message of equality that he relayed from the pulpit that proves Duncan is wise beyond his years. 

Duncan used his Torah reading to discuss the changing definition of "traditional marriage" and to speak out in support of marriage equality and the same-sex couples that he's had the privilege of being close to in his life. 

Take a look at his excellent speech!

Duncan, you're a man now, indeed!

Very nice! I don't think they recorded this during the ceremony must have been practice. He is a great kid and hope he continues to lead.

Duncan you are wise beyond your years! Keep up the good work. Congrats!

You will lead going forward.  Congrats!
