PA governor lets same-sex marriage stand

Yesterday, in a big step forward towards equality for all, a federal judge ruled that Pennsylvania's ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional.

Then, today, more good news: In a move that surprised me, ultra-conservative PA Governor Tom Corbett decided not to appeal the decision.

So it's done: Same-sex marriage is now legal in Pennsylvania. And gay and lesbian couples here no longer have to live like second-class citizens - at least where the legality of their marriages is concerned.
