Gay marriage in Washington!

Two historical events occurred in the state of Washington on the 6th of December. Marriage licenses were finally issued to same sex couples, and it became legal to smoke pot.

A lot of people are saying that it makes perfect sense for these two things to legalized at the same time. - The Bible teaches that any man who lies with another man should be stoned....So we legalized Marijuana and Gay Marriage!

As this someecard points out, the Bible says that any man who sleeps with another man ought to be stoned. Well, with the new laws about pot it's now perfectly legal for anyone to get stoned in Washington, so I guess the Bible shouldn't have a problem with gay sex in that state.

Humor aside, I am very glad that the state just north of mine has finally legalized gay marriage. I actually know a lesbian couple who are debating moving there. I'm hoping that my own Oregon votes on it soon. We'll probably pass it. Because Oregon is just cool that way. :)

There's a required three day waiting period after getting the marriage license before a couple can marry in Washington, so the first same sex couples had to wait until today to marry. I'm sure there are a lot of people there who will remember today as the happiest day of their life.
