This is a proud day for the gay community!!! I couldn’t be happier & am most definitely proud to say that I support SAME SEX marriage. Who am I to say who a person can and cannot love? LOVE is blind, it doesn’t see color nor does it see sex gender…all it knows is what the heart feels! Congrats on a tremendous victory to all!
LA Times reports — WASHINGTON – With a victory in the Supreme Court now behind them, backers of same-sex marriage declared a new goal Monday – a five-year campaign to strike down the laws in the remaining states that prohibit such unions.
The legal trail that led from the passage of Proposition 8 to its invalidation took five years, Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign, told a cheering group of supporters massed on the sidewalk outside the Supreme Court Wednesday.
“Within five years, we will bring marriage equality to all 50 states,” he pledged.
Achieving that goal would require a return trip to the Supreme Court. First, however, the campaign will unfold in legislatures and ballot initiatives, said Evan Wolfson, head of Freedom to Marry and a leading strategist in the marriage-equality campaign. Gay rights groups hope that if enough states adopt laws allowing same-sex marriages, the Supreme Court will be willing to overturn the remaining statutes, much as it did in 1967 when it struck down laws that banned inter-racial marriages.
