So is this one bigger and better?
AHHHH!!! Words can't explain how happy we are right now…but we'll try to explain anyway.
Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee has ordered his state to recognize same-sex marriages that were performed out of state.
As a result, gay couples will enjoy the same benefits in Rhode Island that straight couples do. Same-sex spouses of state employees will be covered by their insurance, entitled to sales tax exemptions on the transfer of property, and can list their names as parents on a child’s birth certificate.
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!
Equality is on the way, people! Those who fear it and support same-sex marriage bans can only slow progress down, but marriage equality is breaking through like the beautiful sun on a warm cloudy day.
In other words, the future is inevitably brighter! Anyone who thinks differently has a big surprise coming their way.
We salute you Rhode Island for your courage and only have one question: Who's next?
