THeath has a great post at House Blend responding to John McCain's statement the other day that he's fine with non-binding ceremonies, but not gay marriage. It includes a list of real life examples of people denied the most basic protections for their dignity and commitment in the most trying times.
I look forward to the day when we don't have to hear these kind of horror stories ever again. Especialy as the only excuse for them now is because some Americans think ewww, that's gross, or feel insecure about the value of their own marriages. I'm tired of the suffering, especialy that of the children of gays, due to such base, emotional retardation - the only reason not to allow gay marriage.
