New Zealand lauds legalization of gay marriage
This simply restores my faith in humanity.
While most people I know would flip flop on the issue of gay marriage when faced with the undying opposition of the church, the people in this public gallery victoriously break into song following the vote that makes gay marriage legal in New Zealand.
New Zealand is now the first country in the Asia Pacific and the 13th country in the world to acknowledge that marriage between two people in love is a human rights issue and not a religious one. I can only dream of that moment when people can see beyond the blinders set by a bigoted faith and rightfully treat everyone that is gay as human beings that are deserving of as much rights as anyone that prefers to be straight.
