Yet again we go back 2 steps in this effort for EQUALITY…such a damn shame!
Merely DAYS before Washington State became the 7th state in the nation to legalize Same-Sex marriage, it gets BLOCKED by people w/ OUT DATED brains.
Preserve Marriage Washington collected about 242,000 signatures to get the referendum on marriage definition put on the November ballot; the minimum number of valid signatures needed was approximately 120,000. Joseph Backholm, chairman of PMW, told The Christian Post
“We had more than 1,500 churches and more than 5,000 individuals involved in the signature collection effort,”
“We know those trying to redefine marriage are highly motivated, well organized, and well-funded. We expect to have to work very hard and will need the involvement of every common sense conservative in Washington State.”
The signatures gathered were turned in on Wednesday to the Secretary of State’s office in Olympia. While there is still a verification process, many recognize that the sheer number of names all but guarantees the matter will be decided by voters come November.
Washington is only one of several states that will be voting on the issue of marriage definition come November.
In February, Washington Governor Christine Gregoire signed a bill legalizing same-sex marriage in the state. With her signature, Washington became the seventh state in the country to approve same-sex marriage.
I hope things come out on top, instead of the bottom, where some people left their way of thinking and evolving!
IT’S A NEW DAY AND AGE PEOPLE, GET W/ THE PROGRAM…STOP THE H8, EQUALITY IS FOR ALL…AND WE WILL GET OURS!
I am a proud Gay American and I will stand up for what is mine…MY DAMN RIGHTS!
