    You mean it only took us 40 years to get fron interracial relationships to gay marriage? How progressive of us. Maybe before I die we'll get to women...oh wait, that already happened, it just wasn't interesting enough for anyone to really care.

    Interestingly enough, Great Britain, just today made Civil Partnerships for same sex couples legal! The House of Lords passed on it by about a 70% margin, and it covers England, Wales and Ireland. Scotland expected to pass on it shortly. And now all it apparently needs is the Queen's "okee-dokee", which is expected and Unions should be taking place in the summer or fall of next year. Gee, even the Church of England didn't put up tooooooo much of a fuss. And this from a deeply religious and M O R A L country like England. I expect complete anarchy any day now.

    If it helps....California supposedly voted to make marriage only "between a man and a woman," but since then has passed legislation preserving many domestic partnership rights that go beyond what any other state has done. A referendum with high turnout from religious types on gay marriage -- which wasn't actually legal before in those states anyway -- is more symbolic than anything else. I think it will happen, state by state, and gay men and women will be legally marrying within the next 10 years.

    More than Vermont, in a lot of ways. Good point about Massachusetts, although that could be undone within a couple years.

    "could"?

    ...let's not skirt the obvious: when this goes before the people, it's going to get slammed down just like it has in every other state :(
