Gay Marriage

As most of you have heard by now, gay marriage is officially legal for the first time in United States history. I am a staunch supporter of gay marriage because I believe in equal rights for everyone. I do not see how withholding this basic right from a loving couple is anything other than classifying them as inferiors. Many conservatives are acting as if this is the dawn of the apocalypse. It's ironic that this happens to be the 50th anniversary of the historic supreme court ruling Brown vs. Board of Education, which desegregated and integrated public schools. Even then the argument against it was that it would lead to inter-racial intercourse and even marriage (the horror!).
