ComJour333: Quick Speech Exercise

Gov. Christine Gregoire announced her support for the introduction of a bill that will allow same-sex couples to wed, before an audience of 100 supporters of gay marriage in Olympia on Thursday.

Gregoire said the ultimate decision to support same-sex marriage was a difficult one, citing her religious beliefs as an obstacle she had to overcome.

“The responsibility of a state is to license only, ” said Gregoire.

“Religions can decide what they want to do but its not in the state’s business to discriminate.”
