For much of the last year or so, ever since the Massachusetts courts ruled that banning same-sex marriage was unconstitutional, politicians have been saying that these matters should not be decided by the court. Now, the Governator, after the California legislature has become the first in the nation to pass a same-sex marriage law, has said that the issue should be decided by the courts.
You politicians really need to get your story straight. You can’t rail against the courts and then hide behind them. Not on the same issue. If you do, it smacks of cowardice and homophobia.
The same goes for New York’s Mayor Bloomberg. He says he supports same-sex marriage on one day and then appeals a court decision that would allow it in New York City.Seems that if he really supported the decision, there wouldn’t be a need to appeal it.
But, for now, it’s California in the same-sex spotlight and it’s anybody’s guess what will happen. That it got this far is a major victory and even if it is vetoed now, it will be back and eventually it will become accepted both in California and the nation. It’s just a question of when. Now is a good time to start.
Arnie, stop waffling and sign it!
