First they gave gay people in California the right to marry. And then they took it away from them.
But they never gave up, they never lost hope, and today they won a big victory.
It's just another big step on the road to equality. The decision will be appealed.
The bigots will make their views known.
But it's always been a long march.
The bigots have always been low and brutish.
And the struggle against Proposition H8 has always been AWESOME.
From the tears of disappointment.
To the anger in the streets.
The message was always the same.
You can't beat LOVE.
And we will OVERCOME.
My reaction to the crushing of gay rights in California was slightly different.
Like it says on the t-shirt...
Because that's the way I feel about bullies and bigots.
But tonight I might just allow myself to be a bit sentimental...or sucky.
And play this video again...

One more battle. One more victory.
Until the day we are ALL equal.
The long march continues...
