Veto Override For The Win!!!

gay, marriage, same sex, traditional, homophobia, homosexual, vermont,
Do a little dance, make a little love and get down tonight, because same sex marriage is now legal in Vermont!!

From the Wall Street Journal:

Vermont became the fourth state to legalize same-sex marriage, following
Massachusetts, Connecticut and Iowa. The state legislature voted Tuesday to
override Gov. Jim Douglas's veto of a bill allowing gays and lesbians to marry.

The vote came nine years after Vermont was the first in the U.S. to adopt a
civil-union law.

Last week, Iowa's Supreme Court said the state's same-sex marriage ban violated
the constitutional rights of gay and lesbian couples.
Yeah!

Now let the whingeing about how "the people didn't vote on it" begin in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...
