Marriage equality

Well, it was a big week for marriage equality and I am really excited about it!

On Mon Oregon judge McShane ruled that the ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional, making OR the 18th state to advance marriage equality.

The next day Pennsylvania advanced marriage equality, and although there was a concern the Governor would try to block it, he wisely decided not to appeal the decision.  PA is now the 19th state to embrace marriage equality.
Positive movement is also happening in Idaho and Utah, as seen in the graphic below.
If you want to keep up-to-date on the states' status', I suggest following Freedom to Marry on facebook or periodically checking their website.
