An excellent guest editorial by Vicki Gaubeca in today's Arizona Daily Star that asks, "when is it enough?"

For me, there is one question that keeps coming up. When is it enough?

The question is not when is the love between two people enough so that they are finally recognized, but when is it enough for people to take a stand for what is right?

Is it when, after a decade of working on politically amenable strategies, the state of Arizona still refuses to provide domestic-partner health benefits to its employees?...

Is it when a couple leaves the state because it won't legally recognize two mothers or two fathers as equal parents of children they raised together?

Is it when a family refuses to acknowledge a relationship of 35-plus years by taking away the property the couple shared after one of them dies? Or when a government or corporation refuses to give the life partner a pension or survivor benefits?

When is it enough?

It's enough. Thanks, Vicki.

It was enough when it was decided to judge persons on the basis of antiquated social taboos instead of their God-reflected love.
