    Now, opponents of gay marriage have to collect enough signatures by June 6 for this to go on the November ballot.

    I don't remember signing my real name on one of those in recent memories. I'll have to find one that is really fake, not accidentally real.

    OMG I truly love referendums, it allows the masses a say on a topic; very democratic.

    I agree with the founders of the American Republic: direct democracy is dangerous.

    This referendum is totally unnecessary. When are these narrow minded, bible thumping screwballs going to get it through their thick heads that gay marriage is the law of the land in the State of Washington and that most people have no problem or opposition to it.

    Mate if thats true, then put it to the vote! have a referendum on it and let the people decide. But like prop8 there is a chance you may either win or lose, but it's the will of the people, and not a minority ruling.

    I am happy for them to put the same issue to the people of OZ. Should homosexuals be able to formally committed to one and other, under Civil Unions. Then it comes down to the will of the masses. if they say yes fine move on, and if they say no, then we need too move on. But the Government of Oz recognises my relationship anyways under de facto status.
