I LOVE IT, finally the dawn is breaking...being loving, inclusive and humane to family members, friends and coworkers is healthy...inequality WILL HARM ALL (and has even murdered many via crimes of HATE)!

Very good news... wish it would rub off on New York. Sigh.

Perhaps we need to sideline the justice issue and emphasize the economic benefits of gay marriage? In this economy anything which promises jobs and income should be an easier sell?

I doubt it...Heterosexual Bigots have never minded taking our money for local, state and federal taxes to support their often LARGE families for schools/etc.

Amnesia, denial, pretend, rampant codependent behavior...their specialties!

Well, that's the line that "No on 8: The Musical" (below) went with...

Heh: "Think of all the lawyers for the gay divorces!"
