Equality and Dignity in the State of Washington

At this rate, the LDS church may have to declare Temple Square an independent city-state to protect it from the dangers of the rule of law.

The Washington State House of Representatives approved a marriage equality law by a 55 to 43 vote today, following passage of a similar measure in the Senate by a 28 to 21 margin. Governor Gregoire will sign the legislation in a matter of days. Equality opponents are certain to attempt to undo this act by proposing an anti-equality referendum for the ballot this November. But that doesn't matter today. Within a week's time, Washington will join the growing number of states and countries with marriage equality.

For anyone still wondering, this is what it looks like when the arc of the moral universe bends.

  1. I'm not looking forward to the repeat of Prop 8 here, but I have great hope that the outcome will be on our side this time.
