I am very late in posting about these events. Sorry.
On May 6th, Delaware became the 11th state to legalize marriage equality. Minnesota followed and we now have nearly one-quarter of the United States that recognize that the LGBTQ community deserve equality rights. I love how Mark Morford put it in his article:
Minnesota is, of course, also home to the Tea Party’s twitchiest nutball, its most flagrantly insane hood ornament, one Rep. Michele Bachmann, a goofy homophobe of epic proportions who once dragged a squadron of conservative “prayer warriors” into senate chambers to ask God to help smite the evil gays.
And lo, it would appear God has finally responded to Michele Bachmann, and the nation’s right-wing homophobes in general. Can you see it? Why, it looks like a very large, very bright, very unmistakable… middle finger.
One day the rest of the States will become civilized and catch-up with so much of the rest of the world.
