RI Governor Chafee Signs Marriage Equality Bill into Law

We were there. Had to listen to some bloviating from some of the pols, even Speaker Gordon Fox got a little choked up and teary when he was speaking.

All I can say is I never thought it would happen in RI. I thought we’d have to wait for the U.S. Supreme Court to finally give us our due. And it took far too long, 14+ years of long hours of testimony, of phone banking, of knocking on doors.

But alas, Rhode Island now becomes the tenth state with marriage equality.

Here’s Governor Lincoln Chafee talking about Marriage Equality. I did cut the video off when he started talking about economics of it. Sorry about that.

And here the Governor is signing the equality legislation into law. It’s over on the left hand side.

And the Providence Gay Men’s Chorus sings for the crowd.

And in my snarky mood – the bigots lost! Even Bishop Tobin is telling Catholics to avoid gay weddings. Really? Here’s mine, avoid Catholic churches.
