Celebration Sunday


Associated Press/Robert F. Bukaty - Steven Bridges, left, receives a wedding ring from Michael Snell, early Saturday, Dec. 29, 2012, at City Hall in Portland, Maine.

After waiting for years, Steven and Michael were the first gay couple to marry in Maine.  The two have been together for 9 years, and the happiness on their faces says it all.  They waited in line for the City Clerk's office to open at  midnight on December 29th, the day the day the same sex marriage law went into effect.

  I'm proud to be a resident of a state that now longer discriminates!

My position on gay marriage: Whatever. It's their business.
And, even though the thought of these two guys "getting busy" kinda skeeves me out, so does the thought of Snooki doing the horizontal lambada.
Like I said, whatever. They're happy, I'm happy.

That makes my heart so happy :) Two friends of mine recently got married in Chicago, so despite all the resistance still out there, the fact they can "legally" be together now and share their love with the world is just awesome. Cheers to Maine!

We've all come to understand that love has no boundaries. After all, who doesn't need love and family?

I'm so glad Maine has done this. In Minnesota, we managed to soundly defeat a proposed constitutional amendment that would permanently outlaw gay marriage. I think we'll be joining Maine (and other states) one of these days.

All we did in Colorado was legalize pot, but once everyone's high enough, maybe they'll chill out and come to their senses. :)
