As the D.C. mayor signs the homosexualists' bill passed by the city council, the media are hailing this wondrous advancement in 'civil rights' . . . but . . . the measure must now pass Congress, a body currently in disarray.
-- From "Fenty signs bill legalizing same-sex marriage in D.C." by Tim Craig and Nikita Stewart, Washington Post 12/18/09
Mayor Adrian M. Fenty on Friday signed the bill legalizing same-sex marriage in the District, clearing the way for the law to take effect in mid-spring after a congressional review period.
Fenty signed in front of 150 activists and same-sex couples -- many of whom say they plan to marry -- in the sanctuary of All Souls Unitarian in Mount Pleasant.
Before he signed the bill, Fenty spoke of his interracial upbringing, noting it was illegal for his parents to get married 40 years ago.
The measure was opposed by other religious leaders. The Catholic Archdiocese of Washington, for instance, has strongly opposed the bill, saying that its charitable arm might have to cancel its contract with the city to deliver social services.
