Random Liberals

We are random liberals (who knew?). Collectively, we make up the greatest blog in the history of ourselves. We will blog about anything that suits us; mostly politics, with a little bit of religion and randomness to make the blog exciting.

Equal rights

BUMP and UPDATE: According to this Reuters article, the Governator does not back a Constitutional amendment banning marriage rights for gays. This isn't too significant, except insofar as Ah-nold is not following the right wing line of GWB. Good for him. He's still a horse's backside.

---Original post---

The rights continue to spread. Now the push for marriage rights for homosexuals shifts to New Paltz, NY. The mayor, Jason West, is the first Green Party mayor in the state of New York, today has performed marriage ceremonies for 19 people so far. Unfortunately, the town clerk is not issuing marriage licenses, and the State Department of New York gave a statement in which it said that New York will not recognize the marriages.

It seems to me that Shrub is going to be fighting a losing battle this summer as far as marriage rights for gays goes. The FMA appears to be dead on arrival, especially in the Senate. I think that the city of San Francisco has a decent chance at winning their court cases, and that the state laws banning gay marriage will be overturned in California. Once that happens, it is only a matter of time, I think. It may be a long time, but eventually homosexuals will have the same marriage rights as heteros.

Here's hoping that it's sooner, rather than later.
