One Step Closer: Oregon Gay Marriage Battle

Here in Oregon, we are finally one step closer to having gay marriage legalized. Today, a judge denied the request by NOM (National Organization for Marriage) to defend Oregon’s amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman. This is welcome news, especially since states like Arkansas now allow gay marriage. Honestly, as someone who thinks of Portland and Oregon as very progressive and liberal, it has been quite embarrassing that we don’t yet have gay marriage. Here’s to, fingers crossed, hoping that this will change soon.

  1. Amen. God speed to Portland! Equality for all. I remember feeling the same embarrassment here in the Golden State as we lagged on this liberal, accepting front when we usually led the nation.
