Washington state legislature approves same-sex marriage

Catholic World News - February 09, 2012

Legislators in the state of Washington voted on February 8 to give legal recognition to same-sex marriage. The new definition of marriage will go into effect when Governor Christine Gregoire signs the legislation--which she has publicly endorsed.

Washington will become the 7th American state to grant recognition to same-sex marriage. Homosexual alliances are already recognized in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, Vermont, New York, and New Hampshire, as well as in the District of Colombia.

    Governor Chris Gregoire is a She. A horrible governor, too.

    FYI: It's CHRISTINE Gregoire. SHE is a diminutive, blonde, CINO. She is part of the WA state Terrible Trio of female so-called Catholics, made up of Gregoire, Rep. Maria Cantwell, and Sen. Patty Murray, who all are Democrats and consistently vote pro-abortion and pro-gay, with no censure from previous or current archbishops.
