As every news outlet mentioned, today marked the first day of legally recognized gay weddings in the US. But if blogger Andrew Sullivan gets his wish, the “gay” part of that phrase will be banished from common parlance. On today’s show, Sullivan drew parallels with Brown V Board of Education in explaining its significance. Though it’s a first for the US, three years have passed since the Netherlands became the first country to legalize it. It’s interesting to see the difference in gay marriage laws throughout the world.
