Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness: Marriage Equality is Inevitable

Equality, Marriage Equality 0 3

There are times when it feels like we are taking one step forward, two steps back. There are times when advancing freedom and liberty takes a backseat to narrow-mindedness and bigotry. But over the past decade, on the issue of gay rights, Americans have made great strides in social acceptance. And regardless of bumps in the road and hurdles yet faced, for those of us who are not guided by prejudice, bigotry and dogma, we see what is inevitable — that all 50 states will some day recognize same-sex marriage, and afford gay and lesbian couples the same rights.

Today the Supreme Court hears arguments on California’s same-sex marriage ban, “Prop 8.” Tomorrow the Supreme Court hears arguments on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). Regardless of how “this” Supreme Court rules, it will not change what is inevitable. For if we are to live up to the text of the Declaration of Independence — Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness — then on the issue of marriage equality, we replace “if” with “when.”

We Don't Break The News;

Founded in 2011, is an independent news and politics blog, adding a much needed liberal voice with hard-hitting editorial content.

We believe in social justice and economic equality. We believe freedom is not achieved until all persons are treated equally under the law. We believe in challenging voices of bigotry and intolerance. And we believe in speaking truth to the political and economic power establishment.
