Seattle offers free weddings for LGBT couples
wnd.com ^ | 07/02/2014 | n/a

Posted on 07/02/2014 10:52:08 AM PDT by massmike

For LGBTQ couples who met that special someone over Pride weekend — or who already have but just haven’t set the date — Seattle’s tourism agency will be awarding four free wedding trips to LGBTQ couples in a sweepstakes that starts July 1.

Sponsored by Visit Seattle, the hosted trips include the opportunity to be married by Seattle’s first openly gay mayor, Ed Murray, along with air transportation provided by Alaska Airlines, a four-night stay at the Renaissance Seattle Hotel, a wedding ceremony at Canlis restaurant, DJ and music, wedding photography, sparkling wine courtesy of Chateau Ste. Michelle Winery, beer from Hilliard’s Brewery & Taproom, and dessert from Trophy Cupcakes.

Uber Seattle will offer transportation to and from the ceremony, which will accommodate an unspecified number of guests.

Well, that was a quick trip from “we just want to be treated like everyone else” to special benefits just for gays and lesbians.

Tax dollars are being spent to give special consideration to LGBYTLMNOP people?

If a federal judge just used "equal protection" to overturn the gay marriage ban in Kentucky, then where is the four free weddings for straight couples, too? Or, just four free weddings for any couples raffle?

Sounds like unequal protection under the law to me, but what else is new?

Now wait a minute! That is blatantly discriminatory. When is a normal couple going to sue over the fee that they are forced to pay?

Why is such a disproportionate percentage of the West Coast mentally insane and mentally deranged?

So the contest is limited to persons of a certain sexual persuasion? Engaged straight couple needs to sue if they’re denied

The tolerant LGBTQI activists would probably beat them while screaming “Bigot! Hater!”

> Isn’t this sexual discrimination?

Yes they are aren’t offering the same deal to heretosexuals so it is sexual discrimination . On top of that they are forcing heretosexuals to pay for their sodomy celebration. I’d say the first gay mayor of Seattle is showing very poor judgment and should be removed from office. In other words they are being intolerant of heretosexuals and are bigots...

“Why is such a disproportionate percentage of the West Coast mentally insane and mentally deranged?”

Because of the constant sound of the pounding surf and the fear of God’s wrath!

It’s just as discriminatory as it would be if they offered free weddings for White couples.

It certainly does play havoc with their claims of “Equality.”

Can straights get married for FREE if they meet at a straight pride event?

Time for straights to sue for the “right” to be included in the sweepstakes.
