PROVIDENCE – Gov. Don Carcieri has loaned his support to a campaign against same-sex marriage as Rhode Island lawmakers debate legalizing such unions.
The Republican governor will appear Wednesday at a news conference with members of the state chapter of the National Organization for Marriage. The group plans to unveil an ad campaign that will run in states viewed as battlegrounds in the debate over same-sex unions.
Gay marriage is not recognized in Rhode Island. Bills permitting same-sex marriage and civil unions have stalled in the State House for years. Senate lawmakers debated a proposal Tuesday giving certain rights short of marriage to gay couples.
Vermont on Tuesday became the third New England state to legalize gay marriage, joining Massachusetts and Connecticut.
So now we have asshat Carcieri joining forces with the National Organization for Marriage (There’s that fucking oxymoron again!). I can’t wait for 2010 to roll around. I plan to be there when he leaves office and I will be the one tossing rotten eggs. At this point I can virtually guarantee that marriage equality will be granted by the judiciary in Rhode Island. The legislature is too chickenshit to move on this, and the Governor, we know which side his bread is buttered on.
I’d prefer it go through the courts anyhow because I see this as a civil rights issue. My rights under the Rhode Island Constitution are being violated on a daily basis. See for yourself, check it out, Article 1 Section 2 and I submit that Article 1 Section 5 also covers it. And while we’re at it lets invoke the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
I am sick and tired of being told I’m a second class or non citizen. The time has come to follow the lead of other states in New England and grant us marriage equality now, not three years from now, but NOW!
