Well, it has finally happened. Vermont has come out of the closet.
That’s right, the State’s House and Senate voted to override the Governor’s veto of a bill to allow same sex marriages in the state. Vermont is now the fourth state that will allow same sex marriages, behind Iowa, Connecticut and Massachusetts.
Additionally, Washington D.C.’s City Council unanimously voted to recognize same sex marriages performed in other jurisdictions. Given that D.C. isn’t a state, any decisions have to pass through Congress in a yea-nay vote before being finalized.
It’s strange though. All the media hype about “gay marriages” is what has brought these state legislatures to legalize this practice. I use quotes around “gay marriages” because I don’t believe that you can be gay and married at the same time.
Marriage is, and has been, defined throughout time as a union between a man and a woman. It never was anything other than that. Changing the definition of marriage is as absurd of a concept as changing the definition of the word milk to also include water, just to make the lactose intolerant happy.
I am married to a woman. I qualify that statement, because I also live in the State of Connecticut, which allows gay marriages. It doesn’t seem fair to me, that I have to specify which gender I am married to, just because of the state I live in, now does it?
