Some good news

Let’s break out the bad/Trump news with some good news out of Germany:

Lawmakers in Germany voted on Friday to allow same-sex marriage after a brisk but emotional debate in Parliament, setting the stage for the country to join more than a dozen European nations — including Ireland, France, and Spain — in legalizing such unions.

This would be even better news:

Approval of same-sex marriage in Germany could build momentum for similar legislation in other German-speaking countries, such as Austria and Switzerland, said Katrin Hugendubel, advocacy director of ILGA-Europe, a gay and transgender rights group.

To show how mainstream this now is, there are zero comments on this article in the Boston Globe. And:

By a margin of nearly two-to-one (62% to 32%), more Americans now say they favor allowing gays and lesbians to marry than say they are opposed.

Yay progress.
