Today, Oregon has taken a huge step forward in our fight against discrimination; The Honorable Michael J. McShane of the United States District Court has ruled Oregon's same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional. 

"I know that many suggest we are going down a slippery slope that will have no moral boundaries," writes Judge McShane, in his opinion published today, "To those who truly harbor such fears, I can only say this: Let us look less to the sky to see what might fall; rather, let us look to each other ... and rise."
