In Missouri, gay marriage is neither legal nor recognized. One of the strongest emotional arguments for marriage equality played out in real life this week as Roger Gorley, who had been given power of attorney over the affairs of his long term boyfriend, was arrested when he refused to leave the hospital bedside of his dying partner when the bedridden man’s family ordered Gorley to leave.
Yet another reason why we NEED marriage equality in this country. I can’t even imagine going through this. No one should have to go through this. If you think someone deserves this treatment and pain because he/she is in love with someone of the same sex, you are a terrible person.
