Friends, it is with great sadness I report that the Vermont legislature has chosen to override Governor Douglas's veto and allow same sex marriage. For shame Vermont. As a member of the House of Representatives, I can confidently say that it is the responsibility of the members of any duly elected legislature to give their full support to their executive regardless of political affiliation. Overriding a veto is something that should be done only in cases of extreme need.
I believe gay marriage is something that should be discussed on a state by state matter and as such I urge all readers to join the fight against gay marriage in their state and to send money to put a Constitutional amendment on the ballot in Vermont.
I want to make it perfectly clear that I have nothing against homosexuals. I simply wish to protect our children from their wanton lifestyle and have the right not to have to live near, sell to, or speak to homosexuals. I would also like to assure that no heterosexuals are discriminated against in traditionally homosexual fields like hair design, fashion, and jazz dance.
