time for equality

It often amazes me how slowly progress comes on some social and legal fronts. I hope the day comes soon when my gay friends can have the same set of legal rights granted in traditional marriage, whether it comes in the form of gay marriage or civil union.

Some of my gay friends here in Chicago have adopted children and are raising happy, healthy families. My gay friends in Florida do not yet have that same right. It's about time for the laws to change to eliminate these forms of discrimination based on sexual orientation.
