California’s Sen. Roy Ashburn doesn’t want to see Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger sign into law the Civil Marriage Religious Freedom Act — a bill introduced by gay Sen. Mark Leno, and which would, theoretically, protect religious clergy who didn’t want to perform same-sex marriages — because, BECAUSE, it creates two separate classes of marriage. That’s why Ashburn doesn’t like it! Because, he writes in a letter to the governor, gays and lesbians would be relegated to second-class status. This (“What I seek is full, equal marriage rights for all people, regardless of sexual orientation. SB 906 is clearly less than full marriage equality and therefore, I respectfully ask for your veto”) from THIS GUY. There’s turning over new leaves, and there’s raking them into a pile and setting them on fire.
