An historical victory


This past November proponents of same-sex marriage celebrated a great three-part victory as same-sex marriage was approved by popular vote in Washington, Maine, and Maryland. I don’t believe that the majority ought to be voting on the civil rights of a minority population in the first place, but these three wins represent a strengthening of public opinion in recognizing the legitimate rights that should be afforded universally, without respect to gender or sexual orientation.

One particularly great story: “After 40 years together, Clark County men will be first in line for marriage license.

These three are just the leading edge of a long string of dominos, but as additional states codify marriage equality, we get closer to change at the federal level.
