Preserve [hypocrisy] Washington

by Jeremy Hooper

The "pro-family" crowd's capacity for hypocrisy knows no bounds:

Just to recap: Marriage equality for same-sex couples is something that fairly passed through Washington state's people-elected legislature. The legislatively approved bill was then signed by the people-elected Governor. It could, would, and should be the law of the land right now, granting equal civil rights to taxpayers in loving same-sex relationships. Only reason why it's not the law of the land? Well, that would be because certain self-appointed ACTIVISTS think they should TELL US what MARRIAGE should be. They have chosen to FIGHT BACK against the benign concept of peace, exalting discrimination above fairness.

in Washington state, marriage equality supporters are activists by technicality. We would be more than happy to live and let live, working to build communities and rebuild the welfare of both Washington state and the nation at large. But instead of enjoying our candy corn and pumpkin lattes, we must fight for yet another fall. But that, the forced fight, is something that is on them, not us.
