    Marriage equality hasn't caused the world to violently explode like some of the narrow minded, bible thumping screwballs have feared. Life keeps going on uninterrupted.

    When I first saw this I thought it meant 607 million gay couples were married, with that counting towards 8.6% of the world population (that seemed off!).

    This count is a little off, the District of Columbia has a population of 600,000. The 7 million includes the metropolitan regions in the states of Virginia and Maryland, note that Maryland is already included on the list, so a large number of people are counted twice, and gay marriage still isn't legal in Virginia.

    Lets hope that Virginia wakes up and realizes that gay marriage isn't the horrible thing that all the narrow minded, bible thumping screwballs from its rural hinterlands think. Hoping the legislature in Richmond will man up and approve a gay marriage bill and Virginia's governor does the same by signing it into law. It would be awesome if Virginia joined the 13 states and DC which have legalized gay marriage.

    DC is on there as 0.5 million. The 7 million listed for Washington is for the state of Washington, not DC.
