The Supreme Court of the United States of America has voted 5-4 in favour of making gay marriage legal in all fifty states. States cannot ban gay marriage now. As a Canadian, I’d like to say to the US, welcome to the club.
I’m not gay (I have a wife and a daughter), but I fully support the right of same-sex couples to marry. And now they can in the US. That’s some of the best news to come from the US in quite some time.
You know, my marriage would’ve been looked down on several decades ago. I’m in an interracial marriage and my daughter is biracial. Interracial couples also had a struggle in the past, but is quite accepted now. I’m happy to see that same-sex marriage is completely legal in the United States now. Congratulations!
Of course, this is going to piss a lot of people off. A lot of conservative and strongly religious people will be very upset. They view it as a threat to traditional marriage. I don’t understand how it is a threat. Their ability to marry in exactly the same way as before is not affected. Their marriages are not affected in any way whatsoever. So why the fuss? Please inform me why this could be so bad.
Again, congratulations United States!
