Delaware Governor: Gay Marriage is Inevitable
We’re going to go ahead and award Delaware Governor Jack Markell (D) with both our Inspirgaytion Award and Captain Obvious Trophy today, after the intrepid futurist (or non-blind person seated in a manner not totally obstructing his view of the writing all over the goddamn wall) said in an interview that gay marriage is inevitable.
In an interview with Reuters Insider TV, Markell, a Democrat, said he expects that Delaware will take up same-sex marriage legislation “probably within the next few years.”
Delaware began allowing civil unions — an institution set up to give the same rights as civil marriage, while reserving marriage for heterosexual couples — last year.
Markell noted that until three years ago it was legal in Delaware “to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation,” and said the state was moving towards greater acceptance of homosexuality.
“I think it’s inevitable,” he said of gay marriage.
Props, snaps, nods and claps to the governor for being bold enough to say out loud what every lawmaker in the country is thinking.
