Busy week...between a number of personal commitments and getting ready for and making the trek to Delaware. A significant bit of events that has been brought to light this week regarding gay/same sex marriage that are very bright spots from what I can see.
First, public opinion:
A Washington Post poll shows that public support for gay marriage has risen significantly in the last few years. That means that political opinion will follow because of course, they want to be re-elected. More information available here.
Although in 2000 she didn't agree, Hillary got on or stayed on the bandwagon by announcing her support in a video. Video
And Republican Senator Portman came out supporting gay marriage also. Full story here.
Finally, the Supreme Court will hear the cases involving same sex marriage next week. And, I know at least some of our blogger friends will be in attendance at the demonstration in Washington, DC.
It's all good, I think.
I have a different past than many of you, and, although I have never opposed gay marriage, I was not an avid supporter. One of the best arguments was made by blogger 'NO HETERO' on his blog Nohetero blog. Check him out.
