There Go Those Gays Again

Gays are starting to marry everywhere now, despite the protests of many “family” oriented groups and constitutional backers.

Now the marrying epidemic has spread to Oregon, where officials in Multnomah County issued dozens of marriage licenses on Wednesday after determining Oregon law permits such licensing, according to the Associated Press.Board of Commissioners Chairwoman Diane Linn directed the issuing of such licenses after consulting with the county attorney.
