Is Pennsylvania prepared for Marriage Equality by June?

Is Pennsylvania prepared for Marriage Equality by June?

It is conceivable that a judge could rule before the end of May and Same-sex marriage could be legal in the State of Pennsylvania before the start of June. This move was made possible in part because both sides, the ACLU as well as the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania both agreed to allow the judge to rule based only on the briefs files and without a trial.

Pennsylvania, Marriage Equality, and Special Rights for the Religious.

In other words, those who oppose same-sex marriage better try and trick marriage equality proponents into thinking this is a win/win and get what they can now, because later they will most likely get less.

The Business Argument for Full LGBTQ Equality and Rights

The Business Argument for Full LGBTQ Equality and Rights

The quote below is from an amici brief filed regarding the court case in Utah re: same-sex marriage,and pulled from this this story: “State laws and constitutions that deny marriage to gay and lesbian citizens are bad for our businesses ….

Why Is Jack Running for Governor?

Wagner also strikes me as an out-dated type of politician who would serve the people of the commonwealth best by simply staying out of politics. As recently as his race for Pittsburgh mayor, he labeled himself as a pro-life democrat, and while his stance on LGBTQ issues has improved immensely from his days on Pittsburgh City Council, he is far from being a progressive.

PA is not like CA: Marriage Equality and Constitutionality

PA is not like CA: Marriage Equality and Constitutionality

But PA isn’t CA, and that wasn’t the reason the anti-gay folks lost in CA anyway. The suit filed against PA lists a number of state and county officers, so there should be no problem with standing nor finding someone to defend the PA DOMA law.

Pennsylvanians: Tell Senator Casey to Support Marriage Equality!

Pennsylvanians: Tell Senator Casey to Support Marriage Equality!

Our senior US Senator Bob Casey is now one of only 10 Democrats in the U.S. Senate to still oppose marriage equality. Make a plan to call his office TODAY and politely tell him that you are a member of Equality PA and that he is on the wrong side of history.

Ted Martin, Executive Director of Equality PA emailed me about my post the other day concerning the endorsement of candidates.  Originally, I was going to add this as a comment to the blog post, but then decided to post it directly to assure more folks saw it. If you know anyone who runs for office, encourage them to contact Equality PA so that they are sent a questionaire. From Ted Martin: Like you, I was[Read More…]

Corbett To Give Gas Industry One Trillion Dollars Tax Free!

I suppose nothing from an industry perspective. The Oil and Gas industry has invested $334,500 to make back ONE TRILLION DOLLARS tax free. That’s a pretty good Return on Investment, isn’t it?
