I love the sound of equality in the morning.

Judge Terence Kern made the ruling on Tuesday. The ruling was immediately put on hold, pending appeals.
Judge Kern has come to the conclusion that so many have before him that the fundamental equality of lesbian and gay couples is guaranteed by the United States Constitution, Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin said in a statement. With last years historic victories at the Supreme Court guiding the way, it is clear that we are on a path to full and equal citizenship for all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans. Equality is not just for the coasts anymore, and todays news from Oklahoma shows that time has come for fairness and dignity to reach every American in all 50 states.
