Congrats to Homos! D.C. now recognizes same-sex marriage. Couples that legally wed in Iowa, Vermont, Mass, New Hamp, and formally California, will have their marriage recognized in the District of Columbia. The measured was passed by a vote of 12 to 1. Who wants to guess who the "1" was?
D.C.'s finest politician Former Mayor Marion Barry (D-Ward 8). I've sought long and hard to find a transcript of his exact words at the council meeting this afternoon but the news is to fresh and FIOA is not quick but i'll paraphrase what i heard on NPR "This isn't a personal decision its one of morals"-"I'm not against the vote or the decision or those who side with the issue, i just can't bring my self to support it"

OH Marion! do you remember what you said on April 28th during your anti marriage equality rally? No? I got you!
"There are a lot of issues that we agree on, there are some that we don't agree on, but....we have to say no to same sex marriage in D.C." then he urged the crowd to "pack the city council chambers" on May 5th (today when the board voted) "You can't just talk about it, brother, you have to work for it. You've got to go across the street and walk the halls of City Council, confront all 12 of [the Council members,] eye to eye, morality against immorality."
YO Marion do you know what is immoral? CRACK-COCAINE!
You know what else is F-ing Immoral? The fact that you spent the first part of your political "career" defending the rights and equal treatment of Black Americans! and now you stand there with a group of mostly African American's and your coward friends and hypocrite Pastors and say that consensual adult marriage is immoral? What is paying for prostitution and Crack with tax payer's money? a hobby? You are a flipping idiot dude and so are those who've voted for you and supported you all these years. I believe in second chances but in your case i believe you've been too fortunate.
I'm disgusted.
Yay for Gays!

WASHINGTON -- After an emotional debate, the D.C. Council has given final approval to legislation that recognizes same-sex marriages performed in other jurisdictions.

Tuesday's vote is considered the first step toward eventually allowing gay marriages to be performed in Washington.

The issue now goes before Congress, which has final say over the city's laws.

The vote was 12-to-1, with former Mayor Marion Barry casting the lone opposing vote. He called it an "agonizing and difficult decision" that he made after prayer and consulting with the religious community.
