    Well don, Senator Kirk and thank you. Wasn’t so difficult was it?

  2. Good man. Sounds like he understands love.

  3. The right decision for the right reason. Well done Senator. I’m sure it’s difficultt to change your mind when you’re a public figure, and to go further and show some leadership against a tide of right-wing filth from your own.

    Well done.

  4. Well done to him.

    But sadly for some, it takes one to see how short life is before you stop treating others which such indignity.

    1. I agree, while all improvements are to be applauded it’s a shame it takes potentially fatal personal experiences or having a family member affected to make people change their minds. It’s as though the capacity to reason objectively is the hardest thing of all.

  5. We’ll see more Republicans ‘evolving’ now that they realise that homophobia is no longer a passport but simply makes them unelectable.

    And Uruguay passed equal marriage today by a vote of 23-8, the 12th country.

    Tom Carper of Delaware has also said today that he supports SSM so that brings to 50 the number of SSM supporters in the US Senate. One more senator and there’ll be a majority.

  8. “Life comes down to who you love and who loves you back – government has no place in the middle.”

    Well said Senator!!

    Two unrelated same-sex couples should have the same rights as two opposite sex unrelated couples.

    Allowing LGBT people the right to civil marriage does not mean allowing polygamy, incest or beastility.

  9. I find it interesting that there is no case that I know of where someone who was pro gay marriage has come out against it.

    But many cases of the reverse.
