Connecticut has officially become the third state to rule that homosexual couples have the right to marry, and I, for one, could not be more thrilled to hear read that. Here’s the full Associated Press article on the breaking news: “Conn. high court rules gay couples can marry.”
And if you’ve been to my corner of the Internet before – i.e. One ticket to hell, please. – then you can imagine my excitement at reading that a state stereotypically known as one filled with rich, white Americans can move in this progressive direction. I think this is a monumental step, one that needs to be recognized especially by those in support of California’s Proposition 8.
If a state like Connecticut chooses – albeit, in a 4-3 vote, but it passed, nonetheless – to recognize gay marriage, it seems highly unlikely that California, of all places, will veto their decision. Hell, it’s only a matter of time before more states jump on the bandwagon and civil unions/gay marriage become the norm … and it’ll be about damn time when that does occur.
Just had to pass along the word, folks. Have a happy Friday! (And if you have a three-day weekend … I hate you.)
