Now, it's just marriage

As a friend of mine says, he's not for gay marriage ... just like he's not for gay parking, gay grocery shopping or other things made controversial by a prefix.  We're for marriage. Period.

As I've written so often, the argument here is about a simple question. Are all Americans entitled to get married - a contract of monogamy and devotion for life and extending beyond death (inheritance, notice on public records, etc) or not?  If some Americans are deprived of that right -- a natural right -- what is the state's compelling interest in that deprivation?

There is none, of course, and logic has had its way. And the arc of history bends once more. Now, it's just marriage, as it should be.
