Gay Marriage as an act of civil disobediance


Gay Marriage as an Act of Civil Disobediance

The couple, Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon, said "I do" in the California metropolis' city hall after Mayor Gavin Newsome ordered officials to wed gay couples and issue marriage licences in an act of civil disobedience aimed at challenging state law that bars same-sex marriages.

This is so totally awesome. It really makes me happy to know that the people in charge (even just a Mayor) will stand up for what they think is right.

It makes no sense to me when people say that gay people shouldn't be allowed to marry. It's just stupid, in my opinion. This whole game of "civil unions" vs. "marriages." It is a huge game of semantics. The politicians won't call them "marriages" because the Christian Right won't have it. It's stupid.
