Excellent Opinion Article on Marriage Equality

One thing I can't stand is the general public trampling all over the rights of a minority group.  In the case of gay marriage, I find the public's opposition both disgusting and hard to fathom.  That's great if your personal religious beliefs state homosexuality is wrong--you can believe what you want.  However, you don't have the right to force those beliefs on the rest of us--especially through fear and lies--via codifying your beliefs into laws that affect all of us.

With that said, I believe this editorial from CNN sums up the issue quite nicely.  Of particular note is this line, which the author uses to describe the evolution of social consciousness in our country:

"When it gets right down to it, culturally we're like children who have to be forced to eat our vegetables."

Kudos to you, Mr. Granderson.  Kudos to you.
