I am curious: How many individual states have to pass marriage equality laws before it becomes ridiculous that there’s no such national law? Minnesota makes twelve — do we need to get to, say, half of the country? When we hit 25 states, will the federal government finally say, “Oh, maybe this is the will of the people?”
Where is the line to be crossed beyond which lies common decency?
