It’s early afternoon – if you’re still sitting in your office chair, you should probably get up and walk around to avoid a blood clot in your leg.  Or to judge or complain about your coworkers…

Happy Pride Boston!

While I love the idea of Pride and all that it means to the LGBT community, it’s too easy to poke fun at the shenanigans.

Regarding the impending decision by the US Supreme Court on marriage equality:

A scan of news sites online provide a humorous overview of the divine consequences touted by too many in the religious community. Catastrophic meteor strikes, earthquakes, volcanoes, flooding, famine and drought will quickly follow if SCOTUS misjudges this historical question.

But in the quiet of the night, away from the sound and the fury, when our social radar has been shut off for the day, what does our inner voice tell us?

There are no legitimate negative consequences to providing marriage equality to the LGBTQ community. Unless you consider that we will at some point have to confront our conscience for this historical injustice. How do I know this? Well first of all, I live in Canada where marriage rights have been extended to same sex couples, nationwide since July 20, 2005. Canada was the first country outside of Europe to make this decision. A decision that was just as fraught with claims of doom by the gaggling gathering of gay-bashers in Canada. Now, 10 years into it, we can speak with some confidence about the real impact of gay marriage in a country.
