Washington State betrays Christian voters, enacting "Gay Marriage" in Senate, soon to be endorsed by house of representatives
Microsoft, Amazon, Starbucks and other corporations, support the measure, in a country where the line between business and politics in itself is all but non-existent

"Opponents point out that voters have yet to approve gay marriage in any state referendum and have in some instances overturned same-sex marriage laws enacted by legislators or the courts. Gay marriage remains outlawed in more than 40 of the 50 U.S. states.

Oregon voters passed a law upholding traditional marriage in 2004, voiding same-sex weddings that some counties had performed earlier that year. California voters in 2008 approved a state constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. That measure is under challenge in federal court.

Several prominent Washington-based companies employing tens of thousands of workers, including Microsoft, Amazon and Starbucks, have endorsed Washington's legislation.
On the other side, the state's Roman Catholic bishops and other religious conservatives are amassing thousands of Washington residents against the legislation, including voters who supported the state's expansion of domestic-partnership benefits in recent years but draw the line at gay marriage."

Note the bigotry against Christians spurted by false Christian Democrats:

"The stage was set for Wednesday's action after Washington state senate sponsors of the bill said last week they had secured the 25-vote minimum needed in the 49-seat chamber for approval there. Four Republicans ended up joining 24 Democrats in supporting it.

An emotional written statement released shortly before the Senate convened on Wednesday from one of the bill's 11th-hour supporters, Democratic Senator Brian Hatfield, expressed the personal conflict he and other lawmakers felt in backing the measure, which he said contradicted his Christian beliefs.
"Regardless of how I choose to vote on the issue of marriage equality, I will alienate myself from friends and neighbors that I have known for years," he wrote."
