According to an article on the Washington Blade, the California Senate approved a bill that would legalize marriage for same-sex couples today. The bill passed 21-15. As with so many other marriage equality debates, religion and God's "wishes" were once again invoked to keep portions of the American citizenry unequal to others. According to the article:
But Sen. Dennis Hollingsworth (R-La Mesa) suggested that a "higher power" opposed the legislation. "This is not the right thing to do," he said. "We should protect traditional marriage and hold all of those values and institutions that have made our society and keep our society together today."
The bill must now be sent to the California Assembly, where other similar bills have been defeated before. If the Assembly passes the bill it would then be sent to the Governor. ===== Do you know what would be absolutely hilarious and joyous? If California approved marriage for same-sex couples...that's what. I can just see all of the radicals squirming in their pants now: "Oh no... they're spreading... they're taking over America!" I hope they get to squirming... their era of controlling American society and culture is slowely, but surely, coming to an end.
