Quote Of The Day – Henry Rollins

“Hats off to Washington state where, recently, hundreds of same-sex
couples were legally married. I am elated as much as I am frustrated by
why this country refuses to wake up and smell the 14th Amendment of the
Constitution. I feel for everyone who wanted to get married for so long
and were made to feel so bad about who they are. I feel worse for all
the Americans in the large number of remaining states still waiting for
their turn to enjoy the freedoms and protections bestowed upon them by
their very citizenship.

“There is still a long way to go. Marriage equality is a term so
ridiculous on its face that when you hear it mentioned, you would think
you were in Riyadh. Years from now, perhaps we can lose the equality
part, the same-sex part and call it what it is — marriage. As much as
the homophobes, an ever-thinning herd, whines and screeches, the earth
is shifting underneath their feet and things are getting better all the
time. This is going to be an incredible century. Didn’t get off to a
very good start but we are making some bold and exciting strides
forward.” – Henry Rollins, writing for LA Weekly.
