Well now that's a depressing piece of information: the NY Times, in reporting the recent decision by the California supreme court to strike down a ban on gay marriage in the state, notes that "Gay marriage is an issue on which the three major presidential candidates John McCain, Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton are pretty much in agreement. All oppose it, while saying at the same time that same-sex couples should generally be entitled to the legal protections afforded married couples." In my delusions of a happy warm fuzzy 2008, I had assumed they were all in favour. Sigh.

Shelby commented:
I know--I feel the same way. Although there is a part of me that finds the idea of the government getting out of the "marriage" business for everyone--where everyone gets legalized civil unions and marriages are private religious agreements--to be appealing at times.
