More good news yesterday on the Gay Marriage (or Equality for All) front.

France passed gay marriage into into law by a vote of 331-225 yesterday (4/23/13) making them the 14th nation to permit same-sex marriage.

"Justice Minister Christiane Taubira told lawmakers that the first weddings could be as soon as June."

"We believe that the first weddings will be beautiful and that they'll bring a breeze of joy, and that those who are opposed to them today will surely be confounded when they are overcome with the happiness of the newlyweds and the families," she said."

"Outside the Parliament building on Paris' Left Bank there appeared to be more police than protesters."

Same-sex marriage is recognized in the New Zealand, Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Canada, South Africa, Norway, Sweden, Portugal, Iceland, Argentina and Denmark. Lawmakers in Uruguay recently approved a law that President Jose Mujica is expected to sign. Nine states and the District of Columbia in the U.S. also recognize such marriages, but the federal government does not.

I expect the last part of the last sentence to change shortly. That will be a great day in that all citizens, not just some, deserve the opportunity to legally marry the one they love.

You call rubbing two sticks together a rolling sex life? Really now?

Did you not read the story, "Outside the Parliament building on Paris' Left Bank there appeared to be more police than protesters." Plus it passed by a large margin, not even close.

Pictures and articles do what? They sell newspapers. That's why you're seeing it.

We've had gay marriage in this country for nearly 10-years now. A clear majority of Americans are fine with it. Who I love and marry or my neighbor marries has nothing to do with the individual or couple across the street. Or should it. Besides a celebratory handshake or hug.

None of this matters. Gay marriage is here to stay. If you don't like gay marriage, don't marry someone of your own sex. I know I won't.

BTW, on the same day, a law supporting gay marriage in Delaware passed in their House and is now headed to their Senate where is could be debated and voted upon as early as next week.
