American Foundation for Equal Rights - current state of efforts for Marriage Equality.
State by state. Bit by bit. Inch by inch. Millimeter by millimeter. Two steps forward. One step back. It's gone far better than I ever remotely expected, in my lifetime. On the other hand, I thought Illinois was moving faster than it did. Once commenter noted, no word about the French counter-equality efforts. One youtube-cast can't cover everything. I was disappointed by the French demostrations, but recalling the Catholic Church still has an antigay obsession going. Some good news from one of the current "battleground states" would be welcome indeed!
Illinois Bishop: No religious exemption to marriage quality is enough. thinkprogress.org No surprise there.
My wild guess, which might very well be wrong, is there israpid growth of religion with evangelism in China. Religion, especially Christianity, is so very, very seductive.
I have to say, in the second video about the proposed anti-discrimination law, I am rather surprised that the religious crowd who oppose this law and want to protect 'traditional values' seem to be relatively young. It's not the usual grey-haired, elderly community you see here in the U.S. I would have expected the younger generation to be clamoring for progress, especially in Hong Kong and China. It was, however, nice to see a counter-protest with visible gay activists.

Thousands of Europeans having panic attacks at thought of marriage equality. Paris no longer "city of love", more like "city of people worked up over their own stupidity". And 1000 priests in UK claim marriage equality is the greatest threat to religious freedom since the reformation. OK, that last is priests, what do we expect. Well, before the reformation, the catholic theocracy wasn't exactly singing kumbaya with heretics, but todays' priests aren't going to remind us of that.
What is it about being gay that drives people into a tizzy? I hate to say it, but such ridiculous nitwits.
Joan, I loved reading that story! Thanks!
Pat that's great! Fantaastic!
Here's nice video of a Filipino couple. A tear jerker.
