This week has been a week of celebration for anyone who believes in equality & human rights. In both California & Washington state the right of lesbians & gay men to share in the basic rights that all human beings have to marry the people they love has taken a major stride. I have never been able to get my head around the religious right argument that one couple's getting married could have any adverse effect on our marriage. This is so bizarre. In fact, marriage will be strengthened as an institution if more people who are likely to stay together, unlike heterosexual serial marriages, get married. Here is a discussion of these developments from this morning's "Democracy Now".
