Video: RI House speaker remains civilly committed
Via Bob Plain, digital reporter for 630WPRO.com and "Plain Speak" blogger, come these words from openly gay RI House speaker Gordon Fox (D):
"There's a lot of polling data that suggests a lot of Rhode Islanders support it, but also you have a very aggressive Catholic church, and Rhode Island is one of the most Catholic states in the country"
"I hear [marriage equality advocates] loud and clear, there's a disappointment there, but I think that what needs to be happening is to keep that disappointment channeled for the good, that the fight's not over, look at the civil union bill, there's nothing in there that will prevent the next step of this fight. Stay focused on the fight and let's make sure we get there"
Ya know, it'll be nice when attending the Catholic church returns to being optional.
