Thousands turned out for the city's annual Gay Pride parade, and the mood was especially buoyant, in light of the Supreme Court's landmark rulings in favor of gay rights. For more photos, visit the Micropolis Tumblr.

My daughter and I were at the parade yesterday. She's 25 and I tried to tell her what a different world she lives in than we did back then and how much better it is. The biggest holdout of hatred is now the Catholic church. There were a few Catholic communities in the parade who welcome LGBT people as equals but vast millions of dollars are still spent by the Catholic Bishops to sustain the discrimination and hurt by lobbying to prevent gay marriage and to prevent the extension of the statute of limitations so those abused can never get justice. Gay marriage is not an abomination. Shielding abusers from being prosecuted is an abomination. Teaching that God's message of love is only for certain people is an abomination.

For our gay friends / citizens this is similar to the scotus ruling in 1967 that abolished the anti miscegenation laws in the remaining 16 of what was once 41 states.

Its not unusual on some blogs to see anti gays whose screen name gives them away, eg REB1234 etc

BTW that was the year I got married - i remember the conservatives having a hemorrhage about inter-racial couples marrying - the conservatives claimed they could no longer protect the sanctity of the white race.

Most of the anti's are old folks living in the past- time will solve this problem.
