The tide cannot be reversed: Gay marriage is here to stay

Just a quick post.

Same-sex marriage is rapidly becoming legal. The tide has, I think, turned decisively with Iowa's decision to legalize gay marriage.

First Iowa did it. Now Vermont has followed. And the trends are clear. With each passing year there is more and more support for gay marriage.

In spirit, in essence, the fight for the rights of gay people is already won. Now let's just work to make it a reality.

  1. Vermont is the first state to enact same-sex marriage legislatively. This is excellent news.

  2. Good point Roger! This is indeed real progress.

  3. I think you're being a tad over optimistic. After all, we still don't fully have equal rights for minorities or women in this country. But I get your point.

  4. Dear Mr. C. Perhaps not. But think of it this way: in 67 interacial marriage was illegal, in 62 Segregation was legal. These things have changed. So You are a tad too pessimistic my friend!
