Tiny little barely-detectable Delaware has just become the 11th state to approve same sex marriage.
The rhetoric today was heated, as religious leaders invited to speak by the bill’s opponents condemned homosexuality for multiple hours. Conservative witnesses and senators alike repeatedly sought explanations for why people should not be free to discriminate against same-sex couples, even though such discrimination is already illegal under Delaware law.
Why should we not be free to discriminate against same-sex couples? Why, why, WHY?
It’s a tide.
Rhode Island became the 10th state to legalize same-sex marriage just last week, Minnesota may be primed to become the 12th state perhaps as soon as later this week, and Illinois is also within “striking distance” of passing legislation.
If Minnesota and Illinois can, surely Kansas and North Dakota will not be far behind.
