The most populas county in Oregon, Multnomah County, is now issuing marriage licenses to same sex couples. County Attorney says refusing to do so is
"The Oregon Constitution prohibits the county from discriminating against same-sex couples when they are applying for marriage licenses because that
kind of discrimination based on gender and based on sexual orientation is not allowed in Oregon," said Multnomah County Attorney Agnes Sowle at a
news conference in Portland, the county seat. CNN.com
The trend is clear. It seems every day another state is making the decision to allow to people to commit to each other in the eyes of the law
regardless of gender. Maybe America is heading to a more accepting and tolerant nation. I hope so!
