Rhode Island is poised to join nine other states and the District of Columbia in allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry.

Gov. Lincoln Chafee planned to sign gay marriage legislation into law Thursday evening, immediately following a final procedural vote in the state’s General Assembly. The outcome of the vote is not in doubt.

Hundreds are expected to gather at the Statehouse to celebrate the new law, which has already passed the House and Senate once. The first weddings could take place Aug. 1, when the new law would take effect. …

RI legislators pulled the same cowardly act as their Masshole counterparts: refused to allow it to be put on a referendum.
Their excuse is that the public is too stupid to decide such an issue.

It would have lost handily.

The women gays breed. The men adopt. What’s your point?

Not “gay.” Homosexual/lesbian/assorted-deviant “marriage” on the march.

The steady spiral into the slime.

However, regardless of what Rhode Island, any other state, or the idiots in Mordor on the Potomac may decree, I will continue to view this as government sanctioned perversion. It is not “marriage.”

Little Rhodie.

It finally has something to be proud of that fits in the 21st century: homosexual agenda is alive and well.

Oh, and another thing. Lincoln (Log Cabin Republicrat: take your log and stick it) Chaffee has always appeared to be slightly light in his loafers.

That would entail a rain of fire and sulfur in sufficient quantities to destroy all land in the state, and then it being covered in salt. Even if such a cataclysm were to happen to the state, would it wake the rest of the country up?

If a legislature approves it in a democratic vote, then that’s fine with me. Not to say I agree with it, but my objection has always been to judges forcing this on populations by undemocratic means.

I do have a problem with a legislature that fights against the Almighty.
Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
— John Adams
Acts such as that make all the people liable to the real Founder of the USA.

this was done the same way as MA, not allow the vote to the public, pay off any who would vote against it

No matter how many states or countries, agree to pretend that a gay relationship is “marriage”, it won’t change what most people think of perversion. It may taint the name “marriage” so that real couples will choose a new name for their solemn vows, and it may limit what people fell like they are allowed to say, but it won’t make normal people accept political correctness.

The homos will STILL be angry. Reality refuses to bow to your delusions, even when your delusions are made “the law.” Homos want to pretend that they are like normal people “in every way,” but the reality is that what they propose is so against reality, it’s really no contest.

Funny how they want to be “normal in every way” yet don’t want to relinquish any elevated status as a “protected class”.

If that happened, liberals would deny God had anything to do with it and blame whatever happened on climate change.

Looks like the URL has an updated version of the article.
Rhode Island on Thursday became the nation’s 10th state to allow gay and lesbian couples to wed, as a 16-year effort to extend marriage rights in this heavily Roman Catholic state ended with the triumphant cheers of hundreds of gays, lesbians, their families and friends.

Gov. Lincoln Chafee signed the bill into law on the Statehouse steps Thursday evening following a final 56-15 vote in the House. The first weddings will take place Aug. 1, when the law takes effect.

“I”ve been waiting 32 years for this day, and I never thought it would come in my lifetime,” said Raymond Beausejour, a 66-year-old gay North Providence man who has been with his partner for 32 years. “For the first time in my life, I feel welcome in my own state.” …
Gotta love the AP, right? Wonder if they will update again. They also had to take a dig at the Catholic Church in the update.
