DC ROCKS TODAY
It's a good day indeed to wake up in a town that passed a gay marriage bill despite rumblings that Congress or the Supreme Court might step in to block the legalisation. All over the country gay right bills are stalled in the name of semantics on what a "marriage" should be, but D.C. got it done rather than let prejudice prevail- although the battles still aren't over.
This week Catholic Charities hastily dropped its spousal benefits and last month transferred its foster care program as a direct response to the passing of the bill. Marriage may mean different things to different people, but in the eyes of the law, better to err on the side of freedom and justice for all than argue the thing into the ground.
Let freedom ring.
