Will you marry me?

"'The history of our nation has demonstrated that separate is seldom, if ever, equal,' the four justices who ruled in favor of gay marriage wrote in the advisory opinion. 'The [civil unions] bill maintains an unconstitutional, inferior, and discriminatory status for same-sex couples,'" quotes the Boston Globe.

The Massachusetts Supreme Court actually gets it -- civil unions aren't the same as marriage, and denying homosexuals the right to get married is morally, ethically, and in every other possible way wrong, wrong, wrong. Every politician who stands up and talks about defending the sanctity of marriage makes me sick. I want them to look a gay man or woman in the eye and tell them point-blank: "You don't deserve to get married because you're different." Fuck only knows who I'm going to vote for in the Democratic primary with these choices, but I wish someone would have the courage that the Massachusetts Supreme Court has shown, the courage to say, "This is wrong. We need to make it right."
