Napa doesn't back same-sex marriage, pair axes trip

Bethany Holden-Soto and her wife were planning a weekend getaway in Napa - until they found out the city council had just declined to pass a resolution in support of same-sex marriage.
"We want to take a trip with our tax return money and Napa seemed like a nice place," said Holden-Soto, 28, of Modesto. "We like wine and we wanted to go somewhere gay friendly, where we wouldn't have to worry and people wouldn't care. Then I heard about the resolution and thought it might be a bad idea."
On Tuesday, Napa City Councilman Mark van Gorder asked his colleagues to support a resolution saying the "city does not support discrimination and finds that all people regardless of gender should be able to enter into the legal contract of marriage."
He was the only one who voted in favor. Three other council members did not vote, saying they were not comfortable taking a position on the issue. The vice mayor did not attend.
The council's lack of support might reflect the position of a portion of its constituents - but not the majority. In the November election, 55 percent of voters opposed Proposition 8 and 44 percent voted in support, according to the registrar of voters.

Aw, c’mon. The one on the right in the picture can’t be a woman.
“Oh, the humanity!”
My birthplace — Good on ya, Napa!
How the hell is this news?
Lesbian couple says no to vacation in Napa because town council doesn’t espouse gay cause...so what?
You owe me a keyboard, Vaquero!!!!!!!!!!
“Naw my local Napa ain’t too gay friendly either...”
They don’t sell snap-on tools?
At first, I thought you meant the NAPA counter guy. Then I looked at the article linked in the OP and found the photo you are talking about.
Now my eyes are bleeding!
Vladimir998 raises an excellent point. If the story were reversed where Napa did pass such a resolution and a heterosexual couple axed their vacation plans, even if a dozen of them did so, it would not make a line in the MSM. This is a biased screwed up SF newspaper.
The happy couple...
Napa is beautiful to begin with and getting more so by the day. Lets hope the armies of Sodom pick a bunch of other places to boycott. Do you think we will ever get Provincetown and Key West back? If majority rules, it is possible.
You’re thinking of stra...Oh, never mind!
Frankly, I would pay not to see this couple in Napa or anywhere else.
They had better thank God for the darkness. Eeech!
What a pair of ravishing beauties..
You mean not all lesbians look like the ones on “The L Word”?
Ahhhh, too bad.......but I understand that Sodom is nice this time of year........
I would be in such big trouble if I saw that ‘guy with boobs’. How could I NOT stare?
As far as I am concerned the Chronicle cant go under fast enough, this is another propaganda article pushing the homosexual agenda, that is destroying morality. A society has a right to choose its own direction. It has a right to decide what it will Promote, Permit, and Prohibit. It permits civil unions, but dose not want to promote perverse life styles.

“You mean not all lesbians look like the ones on The L Word? “
It’s kind of like the difference between the cleaned-up sheep they show at the fair and the ones roughing it in the field.
And having lived in sheep country in the UK, let me tell you, they’re pretty nasty.

Those are women? Are you sure?
“I would consider myself lucky if I didn’t have to look at them in bikinis. “
Now there is a new tactic to use at Guantanamo.
Aren’t they sweet.
“Naw my local Napa ain’t too gay friendly either....”
I immediately had similar thoughts :)
If they appeared in Napa, folks would probably just assume the one on the right was a guy with man boobs. He-she certainly doesn’t look feminine in any way.
*snort* Now that WOULD be 'cruel and unusual punishment'.
An Amendment to the State Constitution is an Amendment to the STATE Constitution. That means the WHOLE STATE, you morally bankrupt rag.
(Boy, these homosexuals are a rather bizee bunch! Still catching up on all those articles....)
Even slugs are attracted to other slugs. But even they don’t violate the laws of nature.
My suggestion to them would be to take their “economic benefits” and stick them you-know-where, but they'd like that.
They are! Kuddos to you and your keyboard for all the pings.
Sheesh I wouldn’t want those two pig(let)s in my neighborhood either.
Lust is blind... as in eyes poked out.
My digestion is shot for the day from seeing that picture.
That was my thought, too, in reading this silly article. Why all the concern over one “couple’s” vacation plans? Who cares? The reporter found these two people and wrote the article just to try to push their agenda.
So NOT taking ANY position is somehow discriminatory?
These folks will stop at nothing less than a full endorsement of THEIR position.
They would be screaming, “In the name of Allah, please water board me”
The article story is such a huge ho-hum, I only read it because there might have been a chance some California gays were growing up. Obviously, hasn't happened yet.
I thought the article said they were lesbians.
