Rhode Island Lawmakers Approve Marriage Lite

It's not real marriage, but an incredible simulation, kind of like Beatlemania. Lawmakers in the miniature New England state of Rhode Island voted Wednesday to legalize Civil Unions. Governor Chaffee has said he intends to sign the bill into law.

While queer activists and churchy types bitch and moan about religious exemptions, my advice to both parties is to take your circle jerk to the nearest highway rest area where it belongs.

I've made it clear on numerous occasions that I believe Civil Unions and Domestic Partnerships are a separate and unequal status for gay and lesbian couples that are nothing more than the government issuing an official statement that we are not good enough and are undeserving of equal protection under the law.

That's all I have to say on the subject. Rhode Island is so small that you could sneeze and drive right past it. I would suggest to anyone living in that mob-run, micro-state who wants to get married for real that they drive the extra ten minutes to either Vermont or Massachusetts and get it done right.
