Same Sex Marriage Wins Vote in California

Not the will of the people, you say? Tough. It's the will of California's Democrats, and that's just the way it's going to have to be. It's enough for me, at least; the end justifies the means in this case. *ho ho ho*

Lets just hope Arnold doesn’t veto it.. From what I’ve heard though, he did at some point say it should be the decided by the voters or the legislature.....

Anyway, YAY!! ^__^

*sighs* Well, this one was decided by the legislature, but who knows how The Governator (as they apparently call him there) will retaliate.

Seems like things are accelerating, though.

yeah, he's going to veto it, which sucks. but it's definitely a statement and eventually it will be the law. in fifty years from now having been against gay marriage will be like someone today admitting to having been against integration or miscegination.

Do they have enough votes to overturn his veto?

good question, i'm not sure how our state constitution deals w/veto override. according to the dem speaker of the house, they (the dems) are considering this as a "symbolic gesture", so i'm thinking they must not have the ability to override at this point.

If it's a 2/3rds in both houses to override as it is in the case of the federal government, they don't have nearly enough votes, which is disappointing...to say the least. Not to mention that the article didn't indicate that the governator would definitely veto; it's upsetting to hear that he intends to.

But who knows? Maybe people will vote more heavily Democratic come this November, what with all the glory the President is winning for his party these days. *sighs*

Despite his promise to veto the bill, Schwarzenegger still believes "gay couples are entitled to full protection under the law and should not be discriminated against based upon their relationship," Thompson's statement said. "He is proud that California provides the most rigorous protections in the nation for domestic partners."

Double. Think.
