We cats can barely contain ourselves today. It isn't often that we hear about another step forward for marriage equality on the same afternoon that we learn of the U.K.'s antipathy for homophobes.
The D.C. city council has voted overwhelmingly to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states. But that's not all, folks. Not only is the right-wing maniac Michael Savage banned from entering Britain, so is that repugnant Topeka, Kansas "minister," Fred Phelps, and his equally awful daughter, Shirley Phelps-Roper.
It's about time somebody took some action against the horrid Mr. Phelps, who thinks it's fun to picket American soldiers' funerals with anti-gay hate signs. Why the sanctimonious, "support-the-troops-at-all-costs" base of the Republican Party isn't all over this guy, we have no idea.
Thanks, D.C.! Thanks, U.K.! Now, if only John Edwards would behave himself...
UPDATE: Wait, there's more. The Maine House of Representatives has approved a bill to legalize marriage equality. How PURRfectly wonderful!
