WATCH: Prop 8 Victory! Here’s What’s Next

OK, is everyone done celebrating our Supreme Court victories? Now it’s time to roll up our sleeves and get to work.

The momentum from the Prop 8 and DOMA wins may carry us a long way — it’s certainly having an impact from coast to coast, and in some unlikely states. Arkansas, Mississippi and Texas are all looking at some serious progress now that we’ve secured marriage in the “easy” states.

On which effort(s) will you be concentrating your support?

    Easy states? This is far from over, there are going to be huge appeals on this from the religious side of this. Then compromises made on both sides. The political and religious arena of this debate is far from over which makes this even more sad. YES, this was a huge victory and a great win but far from over.

    “The rest of the country will join you soon enough?” (Almost the last line of the video)

    There is no “soon enough!”

    As for Queerty’s question, it depends on what you mean by “support.” If you mean money, I don’t have any.

    Separation of Church and State! Equality from Coast to Coast! Thank you David Boise and Ted Olson and the courageous and very patient plaintiffs who put their lives on hold (Kris Perry, Sandy Stier, Paul Katami, and Jeffrey Zarrillo) to help us win equality. Heroic action. You are all so beautiful. Thank you.

    This is why I give money to AFER and getequalTexas. They have balls. Unlike HRC.

    I live in Texas and good luck with that. This state is so gerrymandered that democrats don’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of ever getting progressive legislation on the books. The state government here just made it legal for the state to take control of your uterus. Next is all forms of birth control, including condoms, because that “stands in the way of gods plan”. What with laying off teachers, reducing education expenditures, almost all highway construction going to the highest bidder with “tolls forever”, and unregulated industries that have such low standards for safety that a small town like West Texas gets blown off the map, Texas will have to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century. Texas has plenty of money to blow on legal defense. And if not, it will just have to kick more people off food stamps, Medicaid, and welfare in order to secure more money in order to uphold its “conservative” principles.

    FStratford, #4, I stopped giving to NCLR as well, because AFER fights as though we are right. Harley, I never hear of Democrats using this tactic. It’s really a problem. The House can really muck up progress for a Democratic President with this gerrymandering. How do we stop it?

    Women need to stop having sex with men, until the men shut the Hell up about their reproductive issues. This won’t affect Rick Perry in the least, but other, real men, may start to crumble.

    @1EqualityUSA: I wouldn’t think you’d want to equate having sex with women with being a real man….

  • 1EqualityUSA

    true, hyhybt. In my effort to slam the man, I slammed the men. Sorry.

  • hyhybt

    @1EqualityUSA: I knew you didn’t mean it that way.

  • 1EqualityUSA

    Thanks.
