Rhode Island latest state legalize gay marriage

Rhode Island has become the 10th to legalize gay marriage. According to the Human Rights Campaign, the Rhode Island legislature has voted to legalize gay marriage.

Governor Lincoln Chaffee a former republican but now an independent has said that he would sign the bill legalizing gay marriage immediately on the statehouse steps.

“A historic realignment is happening all around us,” Govenor Chaffee said.

The Govenor left the republican party due to their stances on social issues.

In an interview with MSNBC the Govenor was quoted as saying, “I want Rhode Island to be one of those hip, happening places, and tolerance is part of it.”

Gay marriage bills to legalize same-sex marriage are being written and/or passed in almost every state. Now, Rhode Island is the latest and 10th to do so.

Delaware is set to vote on their version of a marriage equality bill this Tuesday. It’s expected to be a tough battle but it is also a Democratic state.

    Lasciviousness and licentiousness conspired to force same-sex marriage legislation on civil society. Debauchery hails its promulgation.

    Here are two truths regarding marriage: (1) A man creating a family with another man is not equal to creating a family with a woman, and (2) denying children parents of both genders at home is an objective evil. Kids need and yearn for both.

    Same-sex marriage couples selfishly demand “Marriage Equality”, yet, in return, they offer LESS-THAN-EQUAL protection of the child’s happiness than can be afforded through the presence of both biological parents. In the name of “Marriage Equality”, same-sex marriage leaves the child fully aware that his family is, in all truth, not at all “equal”, natural, nor complete. The use of the term “marriage Equality” by same-sex marriage proponents selfishly ignores the child’s perspective of “equality”.

    Same-sex marriage couples profess that it is love which gives the right to join the institution of marriage, yet, in doing so, they selfishly violate the principle LOVING objective of this noble institution; to protect a child’s Natural Right to be raised by both biological parents.

    In fine, same-sex marriage surmounts to nothing more than an unnatural extravagance which the supporters most ignorantly claim to be a “right”.

    “No one has a right to do that which, if everybody did it, would destroy society.” —Immanuel Kant
