28Mai09
It started with the opinion of some people. For some people gay marriage is against their religious believes and of course everyone has their own opinion. That is the reason why people voted for Proposition 8 last November.

According to a survey by the New York Times (Information is taken from the article: Keine Homoehe in Kalifornien), 57 percent of the respondents are for the recognition of homosexual marriage.

Looking back it was only Massachusetts who recognized the marriage for lesbians and gay men. Since then, Connecticut, Iowa, Maine and Vermont gave legal ground as well. But of course, it is not enough! So that I want to finish with these wonderful words of the 17 year-old James Neiley last March, which are still so current:
