Y’all know I am away for a bit longer today but I just wanted to pop in for a quick minute to say that the Supreme Court has handed down two rulings that support marriage equality. I know this is WAY off topic for this blog but this is a historic day in our country. I am so pleased that DOMA has been struck down as unconstitutional. I adore my gay friends, my straight friends gay children and I am so happy for the impact this will have on them. I have not had time to do a detailed explanation, but essentially what happened today is that as of today, gays who are legally married are entitled to the same sort of FEDERAL benefits as any other married couple. Also, the situation in California where Prop 8 that allowed gay marriage was put on hold for an appeal. If I have that wrongish, sorry the point is gay marriage is legal in California again.
It’s a great day for this country and our constitution that gave us all rights so many years ago. Love is love. And we need more of it. I am going to stop now before I sound even more like a greeting card.
