Maine House Votes for Marriage Equality

Just a while ago, the Maine House voted to approve marriage equality in the Pine Tree State. The governor, who has in the past expressed opposition to same-sex marriage still has to sign the bill in order for it to become law. However, his position has softened in recent months. Recently he said “I was opposed to this for a long time, but people evolve, people change as time goes by.” So there's hope.

In addition, the Washington D.C. Council voted 12-1 (with only crackhead Marion Berry voting no -- always good to have him on the other side of your issue!) to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states.

Equality is rolling, and it will be VERY interesting to see what happens when the California Supreme Court rules on whether Proposition 8 is a constitutional amendment or a revision. Whichever way it goes, it's going to make a big impact in the battle.
