On Gay Equality

I like this quote from Ed Brayton

"As Greg Laden has pointed out, the one thing you can guarantee about every advance in civil rights is that it will not have happened soon enough. We didn't end slavery soon enough; we didn't give women the right to vote soon enough; we didn't end segregation or pass the Civil Rights Act soon enough. It's never soon enough. But in the end, justice and equality always do seem to win. We're gonna win this one too. And regardless of whether it's based on principle or political calculation, Obama's announcement will be seen as a watershed moment a decade from now, just as LBJ's support of the Civil Rights Act was 50 years ago. "
