PROPerly Repudi8ed

by Jeremy Hooper

AbeGood news, fans of fairness. The D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics have again struck down anti-gay attempts (led by the National Organization for Marriage and Bishop Harry Jackson) to put marriage equality to the whims of a majority:

The Board, which is charged by law with determining whether a referendum or initiative is eligible for the ballot, unanimously determined that a vote on whether the District should recognize same-sex marriages would improperly authorize discrimination under the Human Rights Act, one of the prescribed subject matter limitations.

That means if D.C. gets the joyous civil right, they won't have it tyrannically rolled back a few months later. Or as heterosexuals refer to such a situation: Common, everyday existence.

Your thoughts

Geez, that's what we have always thought... a VOTE on SSM is against the Civil Rights Act.

Come on Judge Walker get with it, what are you dawdling about?

Now, why can't/ doesn't every state with a Board of Elections and Ethics rule similarly that one cannot put up the civil rights and liberties of a minority to the ballot via a tyrannical democracy?! Maybe I should contact my local Board here in Iowa about that?!

Still, I can sleep great tonight knowing that Mags is probably FUMING!!! XD
