CA Legislature Votes Equality

The LA Times Reports:

By the slimmest of margins, the California Legislature on Tuesday became the first in the nation to approve gay marriage. Lawmakers will now send the measure legalizing same-sex unions to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has hinted that he will veto it.

It is a wonderful thing that both chambers of the California legislature have voted for equality. It is disturbing that one man could "terminate" this important civil rights progress.

I hope there will be massive activism from equality proponents to let Governor Schwarzenegger know that history will be harshly unforgiving to a vetoing of equality. Perhaps we can also hold some hope that he has some Hollywood friends who will lean on him to sign this important legislation.
