Gay marriage should be legal

Do you remember when Jews were forbidden to marry Gentiles? Catholics couldn’t marry Protestants? And the laws against interracial marriages?

It took 100 years for women to get the right to vote and 100 years and Martin Luther King and his followers for black people to get the right to vote. Is it going to take another 100 years for gays and lesbians to get the right to marry?

Homosexuals are citizens of the United States of America and should have the same rights as every other citizen.
