Gay Marriage Legal in Vermont

Dear Readers,

Vermont, the state that invented civil unions, on Tuesday became a pioneer once again as the first state to legalize gay marriage through a legislature's vote.

The House barely achieved the votes necessary to override Gov. Jim Douglas' veto of a bill that will allow gays and lesbians to marry beginning September 1. Four states now have same-sex marriage laws and other states soon could follow suit.

In Massachusetts, Connecticut and Iowa, courts have ruled that bans on same-sex marriage are unconstitutional.

In California, the state legislature has voted to legalise gay marriage, although the measure has been vetoed by the state's governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

I LOVE this!!!

'Marriage' is NOT just a 'straight' institution anymore.

OR a religious one.
