WASHINGTON (CNN) - A new District of Columbia law recognizing same-sex marriages performed elsewhere took effect Tuesday.
The measure, which does not allow gay or lesbian couples to be married in
the district itself, was initially approved on May 5.
Currently four states recognize same-sex marriages - Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts and Iowa. Vermont and New Hampshire will soon join their company when same-sex marriages become legal later this year and early next year.
It's too sad what is happening to our country. Our local and national governments are being accepting of all the junk in our country because they are not willing to be accountable and fight the good fight for moral victory and ethical standards. Still, a day of accounting will come along as the USA is marching quickly into the sewers from our previously long-held laws and standards.
"I'm so proud of the residents of the nation's capital for knowing what it means to be progressive and to take care of the citizens."
What you don't know is that the residents were denied the opportunity to say anything about it. The DC council took extreme measures to keep this initiative away from the voting booth. This act has nothing to do with "residents".
good call ,,, the city of murders and welfare ,,, what else would you exspect from this lawless cess- a -pool of crime , povery and ignorence....
Gay Marriage is here to stay.
And since we are honoring a possible pedophile, soon pedophilia will be acceptable too.
Gee, thanks for continuing to destroy our country DC!
It's overdue, I'm pleased that D.C.joins the ranks in recognizing equal rights.
You would think that DC has far more important things to worry about and solve not to mention a City Councilman who can't stop getting arrested. Instead, one councilman's obsession (just happens to be gay) is driving the entire city's political agenda. Pretty sad actually.
