Wow!!! Huge landmark judgement by the California Supreme Court.

BBC NEWS | Americas | California lifts gay marriage ban

California’s top court has ruled that a state law banning marriage between same-sex couples is unconstitutional.

The state’s Supreme Court said the “right to form a family relationship” applied to all Californians regardless of sexuality.

I applaud this move and before you jump at me and chew my ears like a Rush Limbaugh or Bill O Reilly, kindly read this wonderfully articulated essay on Gay Marriage: The Arguments and the Motives

Gay Marriage: The Arguments and the Motives

It’s because there is a lot of misunderstanding about what homosexuality really is, as well as the erroneous assumption that gay people enjoy the same civil rights protections as everyone else. There are also a lot of stereotypes about gay relationships, and even a great deal of misunderstanding of what marriage itself is all about and what its purpose is.

The purpose of this essay, then, is to clear up a few of these misunderstandings and discuss some of facts surrounding gay relationships and marriage, gay and straight.
