Thank you to everyone who helped defeat the same-sex marriage ban in Minnesota and who contributed to passing marriage-equality legislation in Maryland and Maine and Washington.
The statement is clear: America is tired of division. America is tired of discrimination, of exclusion… of unthinking oppression.
Today’s children will grow up in a nation one step closer to tolerance, love, and equality.
Together, we made historic progress to enshrine the guiding principles of freedom and happiness for everyone.
Together, we can support the continuous fight for equality — to living your own life vs. someone else forcing their choices upon you.
Together, we can treat others the way we want to be treated, with dignity and respect.
There is work yet to be done, but we passed an important milestone today.
Enough with the hate. Enough with the bigotry. Enough with the discrimination.
We are all Americans, and we are all in this together. We all have equal rights.
