    Rhode Island Approves Marriage Equality: Tenth State

    By a 56-15 vote the Rhode Island House approved a marriage equality bill and sent it to Governor Chafee, who will sign it at a 5:45 pm ceremony.

    With the bills headed to the south steps of the State House for a public signing by Governor Chafee, Rhode Island joins its five New England neighbors in legalizing same-sex marriage and becomes the 10th state in the nation to do so.

    The matching House and Senate bills allow same-sex weddings as of August 1 and also allow same-sex couples who joined in civil unions to change their status to married.

    Forgot about that...and hopefully if DOMA is struck down..that will get the ball rolling elsewhere.

    40 more states to go for marriage equality, and once the Supreme Court strikes down section 3 of DOMA, I think there is going to be a snowball effect with the southern states lagging behind.
    Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness!!!

    The Southern states will have to be dragged in kicking and screaming..most likely by another Supreme Court ruling 20-30 years down the road.

    Not at all..there will be other lawsuits to follow but if the Supreme COurt rules it's a states right issue..that is going to be leading to a lot of ballots and a lot of lawsuits.

    One more thing..this goes to show the power of pressure. The two Democrats mainly responsible for blocking gay marriage in the past,Paiva-weed and McCaffrey barely survived primary challanges last year.
    They knew if they dragged their feet again,there would be hell to pay.

    Yeah you know what I think of your doom and gloom scenarios ten years. If that. Ten years ago thee were NO states with marriage equality and the attitude was dramatically different. And the last couple of years have been a landslide in our favor. It's getting faster and it will keep doing so.

    Congratulations to the Residents of Rhode Island.

    @ Rolyo85: I don't think it will be as easy as you seem to think. The civil rights movement started in 1868, with the end of the civil war. We finally got the fair housing act in 1968. We still have hate crimes against African Americans in our current society. I do not think that civil rights for Gays and Lesbians will be any different. The right to marry will see many more battles and court cases in the future. I would not be surprised if we are still fighting this battle in 20 years. These prejudices have been formed over many generations, they will not be eliminated in one or two generations. These so called family values are being taught to the youth of America to this day. We still have a long way to go n this battle.

    I refuse to accept the past as any measure in this case. We live in a different age, information is much more accessible, everything is connected AND we have the past to show us how not to go about things.

    @ Rolyo85: Well yes, dinosaurs do tend to not learn from the past and increasingly become extinct. But just as groups like the Klu Klux Klan grew after the beginning of the civil rights movement, there is the possibility of those same factions gaining strength in the future.

    ALL the hate groups have been DISASTROUSLY defunded in the last two years. NOM is now exclusively dependent on its "mysterious" donors (the Vatican) and the rest are largely toothless. In November we outspent them 5 to 1. That's why I'm saying this is not the end of the 19th century or the 50-60-70s of the 20th. This is a different time. People are on our side. The media is on our side. Pop culture is on our side. The President of the United States is on our side. Publicly and on record.

    Mark my words, it WON'T be the same.

    Americans need to keep their guns so they can protect themselves from gun violence just like Nancy Lanza did. And like Chris Kyle did. And like Gabby Giffords did. And like Tom Clements did. And like Michael Piemonte. And Joseph Wilcox.

    Rolyo85, you do know that I hope you are right, but the pragmatist in me still says hope for the best, and prepare for the worst. I use the civil right movement, proposition 8 ad Washington's first marriage equality voting as indicators that it may not be smooth sailing.

    Gay marriage that has absolutely none of the benefits that heterosexuals have is a joke. The supreme court must act and trust me they will not rule and call it a state issue.
