Amidst all the political races and ballot initiative votes yesterday, something very positive happened in the State of Illinois. The legislature passed a bill legalizing same-sex marriage. The governor has said he will sign it and, when he does, Illinois will become the 15th state to legalize it. That means that same-sex marriage will be legal in nearly one-third of all states.
Who would have imagined this only a generation or two ago? This development helps to explain why conservatives are running around the country as if their hair is on fire! They see the writing on the wall. At the rate we're going, same-sex marriage will be a non-issue in another generation or two. Soon, maybe we can start tackling REAL problems -- not made-up religious ones -- like global warming or ever-widening income disparity. Ya know, the kinds of problems that impact almost everyone...regardless of your nationality, skin color, gender or sexual orientation.
