Governor Jim Douglas of Vermont has shown strong leadership by saying he will reject the bill which would allow same sex couples to marry if it makes it to his desk
Vermont's Republican governor said he will not sign a bill into law allowing same sex couples to marry.
"I'm announcing I will veto this legislation when it reaches my desk," Douglas said. "I believe marriage has always been and ought to remain the union of a man and a woman," I believe the civil unions law has offered equal rights and benefits under state law to same-sex couples and that should suffice."
I think Douglas is right. Marriage is between one man and one woman. I congratulate him for his courage to speak the truth about marriage.
