As we celebrate Illinois becoming the 15th state to legalize same sex marriage, let's keep in mind that that we're really celebrating one things here. LOVE. It's hard for me to understand how anyone could oppose the celebration of love. Because, seriously, if there's one thing this world needs more of, it's love. Sophia Petrillo hit the nail on the head when she offered Blanche Deveraux advice about her brother marrying another man.
Blanche: I can accept that he is gay, but why does he have to slip a ring on this guy's finger so the whole world will know?
Sophia: Why did you marry George?
Blanche: We loved each other. We wanted to make a lifetime commitment, wanted everybody to know.
Sophia: That's what Doug and Clayton want, too.
There it is, folks. It's that easy. It's all about love. And Jackie DeShannon sang it best when she said, "What the world needs now is love sweet love." Sing it, sister!
Congratulations Illinois! Next stop, national gay marriage!
