Diversity is one of Moraine Valley Community College’s Core Values, and our college works hard to respect and celebrate the diversity in our community. This blog has had many posts about exploring diversity (see these posts on diversity on our blog).
Today’s headlines offer another reason to celebrate diversity with the Supreme Court’s rulings on the Federal Defense of Marriage Act and the California same-sex marriage ban. Here are two articles about the rulings:
Sun Times: Supreme Court strikes down DOMA, clears way for Calif. gay marriage
Tribune: Supreme Court issues second key ruling in gay marriage debate
For a more academic argument, you may want to drop by the library and take a look at this book: An argument for same-sex marriage : religious freedom, sexual freedom, and public expressions of civic equality by Emily R. Gill (2012).
