Celebrating two steps forward; recognizing one step back

"We celebrate two steps forward on Marriage Equality in the shadow of yesterday's historic step back on Voting Rights. For everyone rejoicing today, remember what it felt like in 2008 to celebrate the election of the first African-American president while watching Prop 8 take rights away from LGBT Californians. None of us are free until all of us are free; equality isn't equality until everyone is equal and the kingdom will not come until there are NO strangers at the gate." -- The Reverend Canon Susan Russell, Diocese of Los Angeles

Amen to that theme. This sequence of decisions feels much like 2008.
