This morning the California Supreme Court ruled that homosexual couples have a constitutional right to marry. And I find that very exciting.
In its ruling today, the California Supreme Court wrote that "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 to all Californians, whether gay or heterosexual, and to same-sex couples as well as to opposite-sex couples" (Source: The New York Times).
I think it's important to remember that allowing their basic civil rights in no way takes any civil rights away from anyone else.
I know there are many of you out there who completely disagree with me on this topic, but I'll stand my ground. No one deserves to have their rights stifled because of their race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or sexual orientation. Love is love, and people are people.
