The Gay Marriage Legalizing Row

The Gay Marriage Legalizing Row

It has been recently report that Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker said he didn’t feel it was right to allow marriage in the same sex, but he still thought that the steps being taken recently for the incorporation of laws for the same is a right thing.

It was further added that the voters, which are among the general people should have the right to challenge these decisions and the changes in the law need to be helped and aid, rather than that of the court. This was after there was a legislature passed by the Governor Chris Gregoire which is a bill that would tend to allow the marriage in same sex if passed. On the other hand, if the opponents were able to get enough signatures for their cause, they would be able to stop this change from taking place.

He said that if he would’ve agreed with it, he would’ve signed it, but they are at least going about it in the right way and this is something commendable.

“I was convinced by parents who didn’t want any suggestion made to their children that drugs were appropriate. I think the federal government has been very clear? That federal law trumps state law”, he added further.

This is the appropriate way of giving the general people a right to decide what they feel is right for them. The entire issue of legalizing gay marriage is so controversial and pressurizing that it’s best left for the commoners to decide for themselves. The court shouldn’t have to later bear the brunt of a decision they take. People will decide for themselves and the majority would win.
