>Apparently Jim Douglas, Governor of Vermont, thinks there’s something wrong with two people who love each other getting married. That is, if they are two men or two women.
Wait, you might be thinking, doesn’t Vermont already have gay marriage?
Well, kind of. It has Civil Unions, which is like marriage without the name. So what’s wrong with that? Why shouldn’t they have the right to the word “marriage” just as much as heterosexual couples have the right? Plus, “Civil Union” sounds so icky and cold compared to marriage.
Recently the Vermont State Senate passed a bill allowing gay marriage. And it is expected to pass in the House as well.
I know that is his right as Governor, but that doesn’t make me any less angry.
