I am quite happy to hear this. I'm also quite sad to see the same bullshit talking points put out by GOP schills about judicial activism (which I've already pointed out is bullshit).
I can't add much to the analysis of the issue (and bullshit GOP talking points) beyond what Glenn Greenwald has already said. I just wanted to express my satisfaction with the ruling, point out that it is definitely not judicial activism (whatever that even means) and also again express my disappointment that in Michigan we've got bigotry written right into our constitution.
Marriage is a constitutional right. Everyone should be able to enjoy it. It sickens me that so many cannot. The only silver lining is that polling shows that the younger a person is, the more likely they are to support gay marriage, which means in 30 years, when those youngters are of the main voting-age class, we will all be better off.
