Within minutes of Gov. Gregoire’s signing of Washington’s marriage equality bill, hate groups filed the paperwork to begin collecting petitions to repeal the law. They haven’t yet cleared the procedural hurdles to start accepting signatures, but gay activists have already launched their own decline to sign campaign.
IMPORTANT: Should our enemies gather enough signatures by the cutoff date of June 6th, the next step will be to educate the public that they should vote YES on Referendum 74, which asks if marriage equality should be KEPT. And NOT whether it should be repealed. This sort of counter-intuitive wording often appears on ballot measures, dammit.
