Thanks to the recent Supreme Court decision not to take the appeals, 30 states now have marriage equality.
Oops, make that 32.
Yesterday, Idaho and Nevada’s bans were struck down as well.
That means that the majority of states, containing over 60% of the population of the United States, have finally entered the 21st century.
It’s not all smooth sailing, of course. Some Republican governors are refusing to follow the court’s orders, despite the fact that such a thing is, you know, a violation of their oath of office and basically a form of treason. Like George Wallace standing in front of the schoolhouse blocking black children, they will serve as a reminder to future generations of how mean-spirited bigotry can be.
