Marriage for all, or at least anyone who wants it

On the national level, a variety of news stories are always competing for attention, so you may have missed what I consider some particularly good news.
In March, the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) voted to change its official definition of marriage. As a result of that vote, that church body now defines marriage as a "commitment between two people." (See story here: http://goo.gl/c6df3J.)
