Colorado Third Grader Organizes Rally For Gay Marriage (VIDEO)

A few days ago, I posted on the latest advertisement from anti-gay Mummenschantz troupe National Organization for Marriage, which suggested that the children -- THE CHILDREN! -- were all terribly confused by gay marriage, maybe because the adults trying to explain it them were the people from the National Organization for Marriage, maybe? Who liken gay marriage to tornadoes that threaten small businesses and priests, or something? Yeah, I'd be confused, too!

I saw this video of Ethan McNamee, a third-grader from Denver, Colorado, who organized his own rally in support of same-sex marriage, and if you ask me, he comes across as pretty coherent! Here's McNamee's story, via the local ABC News affiliate:

Ethan McNamee arranged the rally as an independent class project.

He was concerned about the issue after hearing about anti-gay remarks on the playground and then learning about a same sex couple in his neighborhood that couldn't get married.

"Everybody is different in a good way," he said.

Ethan believes that if two people love each other that is the only issue to be considered.

Ethan took it upon himself to arrange the rally and line up the guest speakers. He admitted it was more work then he thought it would be, but adds it was fun.
