"A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum". . .. . . . hehe

This NYTimes article reveals the unlikely coalition of "powers that be" working behind the scenes to bring about passage of the Marriage Equality Bill.  It didn't "just happen".

Seems to me that sexual orientation is not really the issue here, it's equality period. A black man will never be white, or a gay person straight, or a Muslim Christian, but so what? Who's to say one is less or more than the other? You don't have to "like" a person or agree with them to treat them as an equal. In my view, people who treat others as lesser individuals are nothing more than bullies and bigots. Love they neighbor as thyself, the man said. It ain't always easy, hehe, but that's the way it's gotta be.

The smaller pic of the rainbow flag (with the guy in the foreground) makes me feel a lot more pride.

So... key Republican donors were swayed by libertarian arguments??

There's hope yet... ;-)
