"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
The Good! *France* Yesterday - the French National Assembly voted to approve both marriage equality and same-sex adoption. While the vote isn't considered all that surprising - there was some chance that it wouldn't pass. The bill now goes to the French Senate - which is also likely to pass it. According to a recent poll - 63 percent of French voters support marriage equality. Should the bill pass the Senate - and be signed into law - France would become the 12th or 13th nation to legally recognize same-sex marriage - as the United Kingdom is currently considering the same legislation as well. Isn't it time the United States added its name to that list? A majority of Americans approve of marriage equality. It's time we got it done.
