What a night!

This post was written by yours truly on the California Faith for Equality blog…

Congratulations, Mr. President on your re-election.

Congratulations newly elected and first openly lesbian senator from Wisconsin, Tammy Baldwin.

You did it Maine. In approximately two months same-sex couples will have the freedom to marry.
We applaud the tremendous work of all of those who worked tirelessly to make this dream a reality.

Maryland, too, stood up,for equality becoming the second state to vote for equality.

Washington state passed the freedom to marry for same-sex couples.

And Minnesota, you voted down a constitutional amendment that would define marriage as a union between a man and a woman.  Yesterday, you became the first state to vote against such an amendment.  What a wonderful spot you will forever hold in the history of our nation.

Do you hear that sound? It is the sound of justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people ringing in our country.

God bless America.

There is also an exciting event happening on Thursday. Information is available here.
