Vermont overrides Governor, legalizes same-sex marriage

April 7, 2009

Well, that was quite the turnaround from the doom and gloom of yesterday.  After Republican Governor Jim Douglas vetoed a same sex marriage bill, the Vermont state legislature overrode him and passed the law anyway.

OVERRIDDEN

OVERRIDDEN

This once again proves my point that bans on same-sex marriage are going to die out within the next decade.   All the armies in the world can’t stop an idea whose time has come.   Congrats to Vermont.

Vermont Governor vetoes same-sex marriage bill

April 7, 2009

I think it’s safe to say that if Vermont had elected a Democrat in 2002 instead of Republican Jim Douglas, they would have become the next state to legalize same-sex marriage.  I don’t understand the point in decisions like this.  Measures like Prop 8 are only going to be on the books for maybe 10 more years before they are repealed.

Fail is fail.

Fail is fail.

Live and let live.
