Same-Sex Marriage Close to Reality in Minnesota

Well, thank goodness, we appear to be very near the end of this battle for equality and social justice when it comes to same-sex marriage.  As I blogged about previously:

When Republicans pushed to amend the Minnesota Constitution to ban gay marriage, I would have liked to have heard whether anyone in the room thought to speak up and say hmmm…, are we going to lose and in the process of losing create a massive, grass-roots organization of gay rights supporters that will then pass gay rights legislation in the next legislative session?  I’m thinking that everyone was so overconfident that they never gave that a serious thought.  Well, that’s fine with me, because it is about time we had a conversation about whether it is right to deny committed gay relationships the legal recognition that they deserve.

Now, tomorrow, Tuesday, May 9, 2013, the Minnesota House is scheduled to vote to make same-sex marriage law.  The odds are apparently good that it will pass.  Then, according to the Star Trib, the Senate is expected to pass it also.  The Governor has always supported the bill and has said he will sign it into law.
