Love Wins

Today the parliament of the country of my birth, and which I still consider home as much as the US, has finally decided that I, and millions like me, deserve to be equal citizens under the law, that love is love.

German Parliament Votes to Legalize Same-Sex Marriage

It did so after years of sometimes downright petty opposition and obstruction from Chancellor Merkel and the more conservative sections of her party. Today even close to a quarter of her own party's parliamentarians chose to stand on the right side of history and to support love rather than discrimination, prejudice, and hate. The most die-hard of bigots will likely try to raise the issue to the Supreme Court. One can only hope that reason will prevail and nothing will come of these reactionary and malicious efforts.
