Tearing Old Dixie Down: Will Virginia be the 1st State in the Old Confederacy to allow Same-Sex Marriages?

Good Day World!

 It’s time for the Old South to catch up to the 21st Century.

It’s time to end the senseless intolerance which has been interwoven into the fabric of White Southern life with stories of slaves and the good old days.

 The same goes for same-sex marriages. If Democrat Mark R. Herring, who started in his new post as Virginia's attorney general on Jan. 11, has his way, same-sex unions will be legal.

Herring announced he had reviewed the state's ban on same-sex unions, and concluded that the ban was unconstitutional. He said he would support gay couples who have filed lawsuits challenging the ban — and if he wins his fight, he will make Virginia the first state in the old Confederacy to allow gay marriage.

Currently, only Washington, D.C., and 17 states allow gay marriage, most of which are in the Northeast. This defection from the would be neo-Confederacy is going to shake up the Old South and tear Old Dixie down!

Time for me to walk on down the road…
