San Diego's Mayor Changes Tune
The Republican Mayor of San Diego recently changed his mind about gay marriage. He was determined to oppose same-sex marriage rights, but now he has changed his tune. His daughter, Lisa, is gay and he thinks that she should have the same rights as anyone else. See Article in USA Today.
It is nice to know that when the issue hits close to home, even the most conservative minds can change. However, it shouldn't take a gay son or daughter to help a politician recognize that preventing same-sex marriage is discriminatory and unconstituional.
At least the citizens of San Diego, under a new City Council Resolution passed by a 5-3 vote on Tuesday, Sept. 18, will be able to marry (for now). San Diego now joins many other California cities in voicing support for same-sex marriage to demonstrate a climate of support for gay marriage in wake of the pending state Supreme Court case.
