Breaking: In state of Washington, marriage equality bill on verge of passing

Reuters is reporting that marriage equality may be on the verge of becoming law in the state of Washington.

A bill to legalize gay marriage in Washington state now has enough votes to pass, a state senator who sponsored the legislation said on Monday.

Democratic Sen. Ed Murray said supporters had secured the 25 votes needed to pass the measure, which is in committee and will likely come to a final vote next month.

Governor Chris Gregoire, a Democrat, has announced she would support the legislation, which would make Washington the seventh state to fully recognize same-sex unions.

The bill already has enough votes to pass the state House.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
