Huzzah! NAACP Endorses Same-Sex Marriage

Illustration for article titled Huzzah! NAACP Endorses Same-Sex Marriage

Yay! First of all, no terrible Jan Brewer: Vaginal Grinch bills were signed into law today, which is awesome. Second of all, The Washington Post says that the NAACP's board of directors just voted to support same-sex marriage today, joining the esteemed ranks of Japanese Mickey Mouse, Jay-Z, and all rational human beings everywhere. NAACP president Benjamin Todd Jealous said of the decision:

Civil marriage is a civil right and a matter of civil law. The NAACP's support for marriage equality is deeply rooted in the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution and equal protection of all people. The well-funded right wing organizations who are attempting to split our communities are no friend to civil rights, and they will not succeed.
