Quote of the Day

"New Mexico's guarantee of equal protection to its citizens demands that same-sex couples be permitted to enjoy the benefits of marriage in the same way and to the same extent as other New Mexico citizens."—New Mexico Attorney General Gary King (D-Ecent), in written arguments filed with the New Mexico State Supreme Court, saying his office will not defend a ban on same-sex marriage and urging the justice to "invalidate the state's ban on gay marriage if they agree to resolve the issue in a lawsuit filed by two Santa Fe men who were denied a marriage license."

Bravo to AG King, and bravo to the two men who were willing to apply for for a marriage license knowing they would be denied, just to get this ball rolling. It is immensely courageous to be the ones willing to walk this road.
