So in case you haven't noticed, your Facebook news feed is probably covered with Red Equality Signs. That's because the Human Rights Campaign is encouraging you to stand up for marriage equality, as the Supreme Court will take up two cases involving Gay Marriage starting today.
And if your Facebook isn't lit up with all these red equality signs, its probably because you're one of my straight friends who doesn't hang out with too many homosexuals, but that's okay, because we love you all the same. :-)
The first arguments will be heard today involving the infamous Proposition 8 ruling in California where opponents of gay marriage managed to strip away the rights of all those couples who wanted to be recognized as an equal. Tomorrow the court will hear the arguments involving the Defense of Marriage Act.
In short, if Proposition 8 is upheld (ruled unconstitutional), same-sex couples in California who were married, and want to marry will be legal.
The Defense of Marriage Act is a whole 'nother story.... the decision here could legalize gay marriage nationwide, something most conservatives, Republicans, and Christians will go nuts over.
We should hopefully hear something before June, if not, sometime in July or August. Stand up, wear your red and be proud.
