Vermont Governor Opposes Gay Marriage

vermont_jim_douglas“Vermont Gov. Jim Douglas says he’s against gay marriage. Douglas says Vermont’s civil unions law is good the way it is, and he says the state doesn’t need a “divisive” debate on the topic.

“In an editorial board meeting at the Barre-Montpelier Times-Argus on Tuesday, the Republican governor wouldn’t say what he’ll do if the bill is approved and sent to him for action. He says he won’t be pleased if that happens before the Legislature acts on an economic development bill.” [Washington Blade]
