Portugal Protects Marriage Equality!
Despite the energy that some placed in using government to attack people’s marriages, despite the fact that yesterday New Jersey decided to not let consensual adults have the right to marry, despite whatever tides of hatred we see in our world, we also are seeing tides of justice, love, and equality where governments respect marriage. It is the job of government to protect marriage not destroy it. And that is yet another reason why it is so freakin’ exciting that Portugal just passed marriage equality.
To those dismayed about Maine, New York, and New Jersey, remember a hero, Dr. King of the Civil Rights movement said “the arc of history is long, but it bends toward justice.” Portugal is an example that this long arc that we are writing together is indeed bending toward justice!!!!
