clairecmc:

The question of marriage equality is a great American debate. Many people, some with strong religious faith, believe that marriage can only exist between a man and a woman. Other people, many of whom also have strong religious faith, believe that our country should not limit the commitment of marriage to some, but rather all Americans, gay and straight should be allowed to fully participate in the most basic of family values.

I have come to the conclusion that our government should not limit the right to marry based on who you love. While churches should never be required to conduct marriages outside of their religious beliefs, neither should the government tell people who they have a right to marry.

My views on this subject have changed over time, but as many of my gay and lesbian friends, colleagues and staff embrace long term committed relationships, I find myself unable to look them in the eye without honestly confronting this uncomfortable inequality. Supporting marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples is simply the right thing to do for our country, a country founded on the principals of liberty and equality.

Good people disagree with me. On the other hand, my children have a hard time understanding why this is even controversial. I think history will agree with my children.

Mitt Romney Accidentally Confronts A Gay Veteran; Awesomeness Ensues

HOLY SMACKDOWN, BATMAN. This guy is awesome, totally gives it to Romney. WHOOP!

I love that it was that one question that made this man decide just who he was going to vote for. This should tell Romney all he needs to know about his beliefs on same-sex marriage. Because I’ll tell you what, that vet? IS AWESOME.

Here’s an account/transcript for people who can’t watch the video.

The French government will introduce a marriage equality bill to Parliament in October, Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault told the annual meeting of the Socialist Party Saturday… France has offered marriage-like civil partnerships since the late 1990s, but those do not confer adoption rights. The legislation, which would bring France into line with many other European countries and fulfill a campaign promise of President François Hollande, is likely to pass because the Socialists control both houses of Parliament, the Journal notes, although opposition from religious groups could make debate intense.”
