Virginia judge strikes down gay marriage ban

Another one bites the dust!

This says it all:

"Gay and lesbian individuals share the same capacity as heterosexual individuals to form, preserve and celebrate loving, intimate and lasting relationships," [Federal Judge] Wright Allen said. "Such relationships are created through the exercise of sacred, personal choices — choices, like the choices made by every other citizen, that must be free from unwarranted government interference."

The trouble with eating Italian food is that five or six days later you're hungry again. ~ George Miller

There will be a day when also Italy will accept gay marriage. In the meantime, I'm happy for Virginia's people.

One day all people will be treated equally. We are taking steps in the right direction. It is still a long road, but thankfully we keep making progress.

I'm very proud to live in one of the first states to allow marriage equality! Welcome, Virginia!
