California Gay Marriages? Not Quite YetAs much as conservatives have been arguing that activist judges should not be in charge of allowing gay marriages, now they have to add another group to that list. I guess even in elected representatives shouldn't be able to make law either. At least that's what Governor Schwarzenegger thinks. He plans to veto the bill, passed by elected representatives, that would allow gay marriage in California.
I'll admit that I am not at all surprised by this decision. Upset, and disappointed, but not surprised. He sold out on this sadly partisan issue, and I knew it was coming. Arnold has been walking a tight rope on this issue for a long time, and at least we now know where he stands. He cowered, just like everyone else. No matter that divorce is ripping apart our nation, let's keep that legal, as long as we have a nice little scapegoat.
I'm just glad that we didn't wait for the voters to approve any other major civil rights advancement in our nation's history. I guess the Governor and most of the conservatives in this country are going to ignore that fact. Luckily, years from now we'll all see how wrong they were, just like Jerry Fallwell now has to look back and see how wrong he was about segregation.
