Gay news; Washington in favor of domestic partnerships, God hates shellfish so no more Maine lobster for me, marriage equality in NY??

6 11 2009

In Washington State referendum 71 passed yesterday. It was to preserve the new domestic partnerships law and it won with 52% of the votes. I think it is great at least something big was won during Tuesdays election. But I am also wondering why 48% of the people of Washington State are even against domestic partnership. With marriage they can use that marriage is between a man and a woman. But what excuse they use to vote against domestic partnership. Must be pure hate.

So if 53% of Maine is against equality for gays, many citing the bible that God says it’s an abomination for a man to lay with another man. Well in the same bible it says that eating shellfish is an abomination so maybe people should also stop ordering Maine lobster. Since the word of God is more important then the well-being of people, a downfall in the Maine economy is not that big a deal to Maine people.  I am not gonna eat Maine lobster for a while.

Governor Paterson from the State New York has called the senate back for a special session on November 10 and marriage equality is on the agenda. Paterson is a true ally of the gay community( a lot more than the other so-called ally in the white house). Now I hope that more than half of the 62 State Senators will vote in favor of marriage equality, but I have my severe doubts. Let’s try to stay positive though for all LGBT New Yorkers and hope for equality. It’s about time in this state.
