Washington State House APPROVES Bill To Legalize Same-Sex Marriage!!!!!!

washington house approves same sex marriage bill

A-MAZING! We knew they could do it!!!!

Last week, we were absolutely THRILLED to learn that the Washington state Senate passed a bill to legalize same-sex marriage!

Now, we're ECSTATIC to report that the house has voted in favor of the bill, which means….


Here's what Gov. Chris Gregoire had to say about it:

"With today's vote, we tell the nation that Washington state will no longer deny our citizens the opportunity to marry the person they love. We tell every child of same-sex couples that their family is every bit as equal and important as all other families in our state. And we take a major step toward completing a long and important journey to end discrimination based on sexual orientation."

The law will go into effect this June…as long as opponents don't "halt its implementation by putting it on the November 2012 ballot."

We cannot emphasize enough how pleased we are that Washington is SOOOOO close to legalizing same-sex marriage! As long as opponents to the law don't win out, it's going to be very exciting times in Washington come June!!!!!

    This is a sad day for our state when sexual perversion is legitimized. Expect an initiative by the people to overturn this travesty. The state's budget is in the hole, and all the legislature can do is waste time letting queers get married.

    That's wonderful!!! Congrats to all my fellow Americans who've fought and won the right to be seen as equal in the eyes of the government. I share in your humanity and joy!!!

    What kind of a pathetic beast trolls celebrity gossip sites - especially one founded by a gay man just to throw around archaic ideals of social behaviour? The 'sanctity' of marriage has long been ruined - by straight couples. All that remains now is the strength of two people's commitment to eachother and the legal benefits provided by a piece of paper. In fact, marriage might just have redeemed itself in some sense because now - same sex couples can marry and they will appreciate their right to do so more than us straight people do. God knows us straighties have been hitting our wives, cheating on our husbands, abandoning our children and disgracing our families for as long as we've had the right to marry. We - the straight people - invented perversion. And we are the ones who have turned a 'holy union' into a joke. Seeing the fight for gay rights should remind us all how lucky we are to have had the right to abuse the 'sanctity' of marriage for as long as we have. Maybe same-sex marriage will bring some honour back to the vows.

    Re: Thieve – Well said. I totally agree. Marriage is has become a joke over the past few decades. Now it is all about the wedding - people spend thousands on weddings, but put no effort into marriage. Canada has it right. If you live together for 6 months, you have exactly the same rights/obligations as a married couple. Absolutely no need for the ceremony.

    You and MattyB must be thrilled.Re: Thieve – Yeah, gays are so well known for their fidelity. Nonor to the vows? lol. Good luck with that, you make gays seem like they're somehow morally superior and above being equals. Rubbish.

  15. 15

    Re: Lady Who? – Can you explain to me how wanting EQUAL rights somehow makes us superior? And how can you say gays aren't capable with fidelity when you won't even let them get married??? Is this actually the way you think?

    Re: Mr. Strat – Do us all a favor and keep your dumb bigoted ass on the eastside of the state where it belongs. I work in the wedding biz, so this means JACKPOT THIS SUMMER!

    Re: buck – Your argument is a red herring. Next, comes…life as normal.
    Most of the other advanced countries legalized gay marriage decades ago, and your consequential increase in bestiality-pedophelia-polygamy scenario? Fictional fear mongering. Those things all exist in America NOW. Explain that.
