We LOVE being able to bring you guys news like this!

In our political climate right now, we're getting more and more excited about the number of people holding government positions who are publicly supporting gay rights and gay marriage! To us, it's reflecting a shift in not only the beliefs within the offices held, but also a shift in how those beliefs are handled!

Being loud and proud about your view to support equality is the best way, because you're not cowering in fear of losing votes by standing up for your fellow humans! This is why we're applauding Senator Claire McCaskill!

Claire decided it was high time that she stand up for love, so she posted this on her tumblr:

And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. I Corinthians 13

The question of marriage equality is a great American debate. Many people, some with strong religious faith, believe that marriage can only exist between a man and a woman. Other people, many of whom also have strong religious faith, believe that our country should not limit the commitment of marriage to some, but rather all Americans, gay and straight should be allowed to fully participate in the most basic of family values.

I have come to the conclusion that our government should not limit the right to marry based on who you love. While churches should never be required to conduct marriages outside of their religious beliefs, neither should the government tell people who they have a right to marry.

My views on this subject have changed over time, but as many of my gay and lesbian friends, colleagues and staff embrace long term committed relationships, I find myself unable to look them in the eye without honestly confronting this uncomfortable inequality. Supporting marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples is simply the right thing to do for our country, a country founded on the principals of liberty and equality.

Good people disagree with me. On the other hand, my children have a hard time understanding why this is even controversial. I think history will agree with my children.

Your children are AMAZING!

She hits on every correct argument we could really come up with as to why marriage equality should exist: churches aren't going to be forced to do anything outside of their religious beliefs, love is love and everyone should have access to the benefits and commitment that marriage brings!

Not only that, but people form new traditions all the time! Why would it be so bad to take "traditional" marriage and make a new "tradition" based on love and only love??

We think it'd be beautiful!

What a wonderful post, Claire! The fight has just begun! Equality for all!

    all gay people should just go to hell because being gay is wrong. i hate gay people. in my school i bully gays. they are disgusting nasty human beings. i wish they would burn in the pits of hell for eternity. as christ as my god i believe homosexuality is a disease plaguing our schools and it originates from satan

    So you have changed your mind & are going to back gays & queers just remember the majority of Missourians are not for this &you are reprenting the people of the State not your mind such as it is. It also tells me votes are more important than your Religous beliefs if you have any so let your conscience be your guide if you have one.
