    Wonderful news! Thank you Arne Duncan, yet another senior government official in support. Well done!

  2. Thank God there are still some sane people around today to support gay marriage in America.

  3. Thats THREE Cabinet Secretaries and the VICE PRESIDENT who have come out publicly supporting marriage equality yet people here argued with me the other day that it was IMPOSSIBLE for Hillary Clinton, the Secretary of State to come out publicly for it. I would like for someone to explain to me why the Vice President can come out for it but we shouldn’t expect the Secretary of State, who is winning a gay lifetime achievement award, to publicly come out for full marriage equality.

      I think she may well declare support after the election, a safe bet since it will be Obama’s last term and I doubt if she has any political aspirations after that. Better late than never.

      1. Since marriage is a fundamental right under the constitution anybody that delays that right is acting unconstitutionally and against the law. But since you fail to recognize that fact in order to paint these officials in good light you are basically dismissing their disloyalty to the Constitution and specifically the 14th amendment.

        Lets not forget to fckh8 since everybody that opposes gay marriage is a hateful bigot that should be berated with obscenities (much like how Dan Savage operates nowadays) including Obama and Hillary Clinton. Yet he is the most beloved person by the gay community who is directly opposed to gay marriage, hence he is a bigoted homophobe who is able to be so with the permission of the gays.

  4. Start teaching it then.

    Having not got the answer they were after on previous occasions, The Telegraph are running yet another poll on marriage equality in the UK. Vote here and pass it on:

      1. Yes, is now over 11,400 votes 77.59%, the no vote is 3294 22.41%! I bet The Telegrpah wished they had not started the poll now
