Minnesota legalizes same-sex marriage

In another step forward towards equality for all, today Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton signed a bill legalizing same-sex marriage in that state. This makes Minnesota the 12th U.S. state, plus the District of Columbia, to end marriage discrimination against gays and lesbians.

Delaware enacted similar legislation last week, as did Rhode Island the week before. That's three states so far this month!

While it is impractical to expect that kind of momentum to continue steadily, these developments provide clear evidence that the tide is shifting in favor of same-sex marriage.

38 more states to go. I hope I will see it in my lifetime.
