Which explains why the anti-gays are now doing everything they can to stop a vote of the people in states like Oregon & Ohio.

Funny thing about Washington, they tried to petition a law to overturn our legalizing gay unions here .... and it died faster than a fish out of water. The bigots are losing, and they're turning even their own kids against them, as well as offering no one any reason to defend their right to be bigots in any way. The only true constant in the universe is change.

The case in KY is going to be interesting as well.

For years they anti gays pushed civil unions claiming they would provide all the rights and benefits that marriage does.

Now we shall see.
Exclusive: Will a lesbian couple be forced to testify against each other?

Our state government knew it was not the same, nor did they buy the lies. As idiotic as our city government in Seattle is on budget planning, at least they are not so idiotic as to ignore such nuances.

EVERYONE knew civil unions could never provide the same rights & benefits of marriage.

The anti-gays NEVER had any intention of providing equality on ANY level which is why they still fight civil unions as much as they fight against marriage equality.

Thankfully that ruse is coming to an end now that DOMA has been overturned. No one can even pretend civil unions provide any kind of equality.

Look at the trend and the demographics-

1-2% increase per year for the past 20 years in support for marriage equality across the board in EVERY demographic.

70%+ support among those under age 40.
50%+ support among those under age 55.

The ONLY age group with more than 50% opposition to marriage equality are those over age 55.

The opposition to marriage for same-sex couples is literally dying off.

Within a decade there won't be a majority opposed anywhere, even in the south.
