I know a lot of people are happy about same-sex civil unions. At least their relationships are validated in the eyes of the law and they can benefit just like married couples.
Hawaiian legislature just approved civil unions. You can read about it here.
But frankly I'm still fighting for equality and the right to marry just like everyone else. It's the only issue I'll ever discuss openly on this blog. And when I read books, like one I just finished by a new author, S. L. Danielson, I'm even more encouraged to fight for marriage.
Like I said, civil unions are okay. At least it allows us to ride in the back of the bus, President Obama/Federal Government. However, I'd rather have the legal choice to ride up front with everyone else instead of being treated like a second class citizen.
