Ireland Becomes First Nation to Constitutionalize Gay Marriage by Popular Vote

While the American religious right continues to thump an empty drum beat that marriage is about reproduction instead of love, the rest of the world moves forward. Today, the Republic of Ireland has become the first nation on Earth to amend its constitution by vote of its people, to grant the right to marry to all its citizens, regardless of whom they love, or the physical gender of that person.

The Washington Post (along with everybody else) has the story.

This is a great day.

I'm the voice from left of center at FirewallNOVA. Sometimes pretty far left, sometimes pretty close to center. Sometimes maybe not left of center at all. But, mostly, I'm a bleeding-heart liberal or, if not, the crowd on the other side tends to think I am. I can live with that.
