Same Sex Marriage Amendment: Will Face Virginia Vote
In November Virginia voters will be deciding a key issue: Should there are should there not be same sex marriage?
This has progressed through the Virginia Assembly by this process as reported by the Washington Times:
"To amend the state constitution, the General Assembly must pass a resolution in two separate years separated by a legislative election with no change in the legislation, then offer it for statewide voter approval in a fall general election. This is the second year that the House and Senate have overwhelmingly passed identical resolutions calling for a constitutional ban on homosexual "marriage."
Now the question is how it will appear on the ballot. Will there be a short summary of the law? Or will the whole amendment be presented?
This decision itself is fomenting much discussion. The answer may ultimately come from Tim Kane. The amendment also comes under fire, because the wording may compromise some contracts between between individuals that are unrelated to marriage.
