New Hampshire opens to civil unions

While civil unions are just shy of the actual thing, gays in New Hampshire can now have legal civil unions, and receive many of the benefits of marriage. While I would rather be able to say that they offer marriages, civil unions are progress to many of the states that are going the other way.

I have to wonder: what ever happened to equal rights? The Constitution says that "all men are created equal," but the reality is that our country refuses to let that happen. More than many other groups, gays are at a greater disadvantage, in terms of rights. Perhaps in the coming years, things will change for the better.
