    Great news!

  2. Any opinion polls showing what would happen in a referendum?

    1. I’ve seen one – if passed, majority wouldn’t repeal it

    After all the stupidity of the Republican primaries, it’s good to see that there are still some Americans that believe in a fair and just society.

    As liberal as my state is, I’ve been at a loss as to why we didn’t do this years ago.
    Here’s to being on the right side of history, cheers :)

    If this is legalised through the state legislature, it is a lot harder to repeal even by a ballot initiative. I doubt if this would stand a chance of being overturned. That’s why it is more important to use the legislature than the courts.

    Maryland is about to introduce a bill legalising same-sex marriage. Good luck anyway to Washington state, long overdue.

    Good news out of Washington state and Maryland. And possibly New Jersey as well. Brick by brick the wall is coming down.

  9. Bravo Washington!
