Washington state released the names of the people who signed a petition to bring a domestic partnership law to a public vote two years ago with Referendum 71.

The judge reasoning behind it is, ” if Protect Marriage could get around the Public Records Act ‘by simply providing a few isolated incidents of profane or indecent statements, gestures, or other examples of uncomfortable conversations … disclosure would become the exception instead of the rule.”

Of course, the people who signed this petition are scared of hostility that would be made towards then so they are trying to appeal this rule.

If you are going to sign a petition to prohibit certain people from doing what makes them happy to make your self feel more secure then you should be able to accept the whatever hostility that may come towards you. Why sign the petition if you can’t admit openly that you signed it? Cowardly-much?

Finally, over 50% of America supports gay marriage!

The Washington Post/ABC news took a poll asking “Do you think it should be legal or illegal for gay and lesbian couples to get married?” Surely enough, the number of people who replied that gay marriage should be legal increased by 17 percent making it now 53%!

According to the “results indicate increased support from men, college-educated whites, political independents and participates who are not religious-affiliated.”

The poll was randomly conducted by phone from March 10 to 13 and sampled 1,005 adults.
