Washington State gay ‘marriage’ law halted 240,000 signatures filed in opposition
(LifeSiteNews.com) – Washington State’s new gay “marriage” law has been halted one day before it was set to come into effect, after Preserve Marriage Washington (PMW) collected and filed over 240,000 signatures opposing the redefinition of marriage.
The “marriage” law, signed by Governor Chris Gregoire, would have made Washington the seventh state to legalize gay “marriages.”
Brian Brown, president of National Organization for Marriage, commended PMW, stating that the successful signature campaign demonstrates the “deep support that traditional marriage enjoys” and “sets the stage for a tremendous victory for marriage this November.”
“The signature gathering effort produced more signatures than have ever been collected by any referendum committee in the history of the state,” Brown declared.
