If you’ve been anywhere near a computer you know that yesterday President Obama went on record as personally in support of gay marriage.
While I can report that my own social networks more or less exploded with celebration—this jubilation was not shared by either log cabin republicans or folks like RNC chair, Reince Priebus. While the former have a point, the announcement did take away a little of the sting of North Carolina voters passing a state constitutional amendment to define marriage as solely between a man and a woman.
Among my social network, at least one current resident of North Carolina pointed out that the student heavy triangle counties were among those that did not pass the amendment, further evidence that equality may only be a matter of time (although I’ll assert that it cannot come fast enough), and that pockets of tolerance exist everywhere.
Cheers to that. Follow the celebration and backlash and further state developments with the Same-Sex Marriage Trap.
