Same sex civil unions legalized in Colorado.

Yesterday Colorado quietly legalized same sex civil unions.  Each time LGBT people get closer to equal rights, it’s progressively met by a softer whimper from equality’s detractors.  When gays are finally allowed by federal law to get married, anti-equality people will stare at the ground and mosey into their churches to whine about how the world will collapse.  Meanwhile, the world will keep on spinning, just with more equality.

There was but one primary objection in CO:

Opponents had argued that civil unions would lead to gay marriage in Colorado and unfairly restrict those with religious objections.

Yes, because other people choosing their mate for life restricts someone else.  It restricts the ability of the pious to dictate who someone else should love, but that’s a restriction that’s long overdue.

Here’s to hoping that this provision does lead to the legalization of marriage equality during the next election cycle.  That’s another one that’s long overdue.
