I am having a very hard time wrapping my brain around the passage of marriage equality measures this week. As everybody has already noted, any time gay marriage has been placed before a popular vote, it has lost.
Minority rights should never be placed in the hands of the majority, as the majority will invariably deny them, a fact which, regarding gay marriage, has been proven over 30 times in state-wide elections. If the abolition of slavery had been voted upon by the general population of, say, South Carolina, Charleston would still be hosting slave auctions.
The reversal of this trend leaves me happily astonished. Perhaps there is hope for mankind after all.
I bet it pleases Robert Klein, too.
He's appeared once before on the Dance Party, go here to see his lively duet with Lucie Arnaz. This week, he welcomes homosexuals to that institution previously reserved only for the straight.
