    Well yes technically that is correct in the sense that neither a homosexual nor a heterosexual can marry someone of the same sex. But I cant say that it is truly equal treatment but only equal treatment in the most strict sense of the word.

    You may be right but a lot of the uncounted ballots are from Eastern Washington and that is the Conservative part of the state.

    No, NP.

    Referendum Measure No. 74 Concerns marriage for same-sex couples

    100% of votes are in. Sorry NP.

    This is the battle you'll lose.

    And it's just the beginning.

    it becomes iffy when subjective gray areas become the standard for the law. For example, there is no doubt that Michael Andretti or Danika Patrick can safely drive a high performance sports car at 200 MPH on many stretches of the Interstate Highway. But we have an objective standard because if we used a subjective standard, the courts would be clogged for years

    I don't see the issue with plural marriages either.
