Prop 8 / Marriage

United States district court Judge Vaughn Walker overturned Proposition 8 on August 4, 2010. Same sex couples are once again allowed to marry (for the time being, at least).

Watching this all unfold, I wonder how long the rich rightwingers are going to determine what agenda we have to spend money and energy reacting to?

I won't deny that this ruling is significant or that, same sex couples shouldn't be afforded the same benefits associated with marriage that are available to heterosexual couples. However, it is ridiculous that such needed benefits are attached to some old religious institution that still equates love with property.

I now turn it over to the awesome folks at Gay Shame:

Marriage Is Murder
