Wow! This is actually a no brainer! Gays and Lesbians are treated like second class citizens, because they love differently. We even pay higher taxes than married, hetorsexual couples. I don’t know if I will ever have the priviledge of getting married to the love of my life, my partner of fifteen years. We have a civil union, but it isn’t marriage.
I’ve always said, “Gay marriage is all about the mighty dollar.” If my partner were to pass away, I would not be entitled to her social security or retirement benefits from our employer. Now, why would the government want to pass up on all that money?
Hopefully, one day, Toni and I will actually get to get married. I am just happy a sitting President thinks that I am a first class citizen. What a historical moment.
