To the cowardly voters who approved anti-gay marriage ammendments in Idaho, Colorado, South Dakota, South Carolina, Tennessee and Wisconsin this week,

Given a lot of the arrogant, anti-Mexico rhetoric that the recent immigration debates stirred up (much of it in those same states), I find it ironic that

Mexico City Approves Gay Civil Unions

and it didn't just squeak by, it passed by a vote of 43-17.

Even in a "third world" country like Mexico, decent people recognize that finding ways to make the world fairer to the people in it is better than finding ways to protect the narrow-minded, bigoted, ill-conceived, ignorant, mean-spirited, and just all around stupid prejudices that masquerade as opinions for so many people in this country.
