“There are two issues here. One is the state’s responsibility. To me the state’s responsibility is to absolutely ensure equality. The other is a religious issue and I leave it to the churches to make that call about marriage. To me it is a sacrament. I will never suggest the state of Washington marry me. The state of Washington gave me responsibilities, it gave me rights, it gave me benefits.” – Washington state Governor Christine Gregoire on her faith and gay marriage. Gregoire supports equal benefits, but won’t budge on the semantics of it all. [Seattle Times]

      To think she spoke at the HRC Pacific Northwest Dinner last year…

      That shade of lipstick does not go with that dyed hair color! (Shallow, I know but you were thinking it!)

      Another spineless politician justifying bigotry with “to me, marriage means YOU AREN’T WORTHY, FAG!”

      She’s also scheduled to appear at the dinner in 10 days. Ask her to be with us or against us, or cancel her appearance HRC!

      Well say what you want about her based on this article but note she did sign the Domestic Partnership Bill and then also signed into a law additions to that bill to even further extend Domestic Partnerships in WA state. We have two people running for governor Ms. Gregoire and Dino Rossi (a devote catholic) who has said in public he would veto a gay marriage bill and that he would support repeal of the Domestic Partnership Bill. I won’t even go into is stance on a woman’s right to choose, sex education, etc. I know which one I am going to choose.
