Win some, lose some

You win some and you lose some. We get a highly qualified woman of Hispanic decent nominated for the Supreme Court of the United States of America and the California Supreme Court continues to push us back to the stone ages with their same sex marriage decision.

Why, in the most democratic country in the world, can't everyone enjoy the same rights and privileges? Why, when many states are moving to enable same sex couples to marry, so some states move to restrict basic civil rights?

It has nothing to do with Adam and Eve or Adam and Steve but is has to do with very narrow thinking that was in place when the law prohibited blacks from voting or attending the same schools as whites.

People must take off their critical and judgemental blinders and look at our nation with a world vision when it comes to civil rights and social justice.

Maybe our new Supreme Court justice will agree with the 80% of the population that is open minded and stop agreeing with the 20% who are not.
