Gay Star News round-up: Gay marriage in Washington & marriage views of Ted Haggard & Margaret Court
Taking a page out of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s playbook, Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire (pictured) said today that she is going to push to make same-sex marriage legal in her state.
‘It’s time, it’s the right thing to do, and I will introduce a bill to do it,’ Gregoire said in a statement. ‘Our gay and lesbian families face the same hurdles as heterosexual families — making ends meet, choosing what school to send their kids to, finding someone to grow old with, standing in front of friends and family and making a lifetime commitment.’

While on the topic of gay marriage, let me direct you to two other pieces I wrote today about that very subject. The first is on Ted Haggard, the disgraced former minister who is currently on ABC’s Celebrity Wife Swap. Even though Haggard famously cheated on his wife with a male prostitute, he still is against gay marriage. See story HERE.
Then there is tennis legend Margaret Court who is defending her very public stance against same-sex marriage and seems to feel misunderstood about it all. But she has no plans to skip this month’s Australian Open despite talk of protests against her at the tournament. See story HERE.
