GOP Washington State Senator Records Testimonial For Marriage Equality: VIDEO


Continuing his tradition of standing up for LGBT citizens, Republican State Senator Steve Litzow joined pro-equality group Washington United For Marriage to fight a referendum that could potentially reverse a legislature-approved law granting marriage rights to same-sex couples.

"I was one of the first Republicans to sponsor marriage equality because I believe it's the right thing to do," Litzow explains in the video, one in a series called "Why Marriage Matters," which also enlisted Methodist Minister Melvin Woodworth.

Litzow continues, "I believe every adult should have the right to choose the person they love and who they marry."

Watch the rest of Litzow's remarks AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. *ahem*

    "Unlike the vast majority of my fellow Republicans, I'm not stupid enough to believe that one day the "South Will Rise Again" and that somehow the world will spin in reverse and undo all the progress begun in the 20th century. I'm aware of how history will play out, and be remembered, and I'd really like to ensure that my future grandchildren won't need to hang their heads in shame when their classmates google my name, and their name. Because for nearly all of my Republican contemporaries, that's going to be the case; grandchildren having to live down the embarrassing shame of being related to some of the *proudest* ignorant bigots America has ever seen - Jesse Helms, anyone?

    So, I'd like to make a point to be on the right end of history. At least, when it comes to The Gays. The Poor Who Can't Afford Healthcare, notsomuch."

  4. Steve, you are a good man. Unfortunately you won't get much support from your fellow republicans or from the left wing ideologues who post on this site. Continue to do what you know to be right regardless of the idiots who oppose you.

  5. Thanks for posting Litzow's video. I'm concerned about the text introducing it, however. While we fought the efforts to get the referendum on the ballot, now that it's going to be there, we must support it wholeheartedly. A vote to APPROVE Referendum 74 is a vote to keep the marriage equality law our legislature passed. Language like "fighting the referendum" makes it sound like we need to reject it -- and there's already way too much confusion about that.

    So again, can't say it enough: APPROVE R74!!!!!
