Thread: Washington Senate approves bill to legalize gay marriage

  1. #1

    Default Washington Senate approves bill to legalize gay marriage

    The measure was passed on a 28-21 vote. Four Republicans crossed party lines and voted with majority Democrats for the measure. Three Democrats voted against it.

    Any challenge to the bill can't be filed until after it is passed by the full Legislature and signed into law by Gregoire. Opponents then must turn in 120,577 signatures by June 6.

    If opponents aren't able to collect enough signatures, gay and lesbian couples would be able to be wed starting in June. Otherwise, they would have to wait until the results of a November election.

    They will get the signatures to challenge, I have no doubts about that. But I am not sure if my state has enough support to stop it come November.

    About time.
    Iím happy that you're so appalled
    Don't stand for anything at all
    Just listen to your whining, accusations
    Your petty provincialism

    And I don't think I wanna be subject to your morality

    The Federal Government will not allow gay marriage yet so this bill is pointless.

    I'm going there and demand they marry me and my sister

    Are you and your sister adults?

    Does she consent to the marriage?

    If yes on both counts, then more power to you.

    As usual Seattle and the coast runs the rest of the state. The leftists simply run Washington, to it's discredit.
    Who do you call for when the government itself is the enemy of America?

    Another little step forward! At least, it's a step in the right direction for equal rights!
    Good deal!
