Just had to post this breaking story:
(CNN) — Vermont’s House and Senate voted Tuesday to override the governor’s veto of a bill legalizing same-sex marriage in the state.
Now let’s see how all the people who use “judges shouldn’t legislate” as an excuse for not being able to handle same sex marriage find a way around this one. I’m sure they will try to find a way to explain how this still isn’t the right way to do it. Of course, when you believe there’s no right way to do it, you’re not going to be happy no matter what. Personally, I’m happy for Vermonters.
Update: This bit of news:
The D.C. Council voted today to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states, on the same day that Vermont became the fourth state to legalize same-sex unions.
Wonder how Congress, which could theoretically override the Council, is going to react to that one.
