Hooray, California!!

New York May 15, 2008 — Earlier today, the California Supreme Court handed down a historic decision, making it the second state high court to rule in favor of ending the exclusion of same-sex couples from marriage. In its ruling, the court said, “in view of the substance and significance of the fundamental constitutional right to form a family relationship, the California Constitution properly must be interpreted to guarantee this basic civil right [marriage] to all Californians, whether gay or heterosexual, and to same-sex couples as well as to opposite-sex couples.”

I will NEVER understand how anyone can say claim that "family values" mean we should deny the right-to-marry to any couple who wants to commit to each other for life.

This is great news - I hadn't heard (I tend to ignore the news because I am a wimp who hates to be sad). Here's hoping more states follow suit.
