Schwarzenegger's gay-marriage veto

October 04, 2005

Re "Gov. Vetoes Same-Sex Marriage Bill," Sept. 30

The gay marriage bill would have removed redundant legislation and provided equal rights and responsibilities to all Californians. There was no reason to veto the bill: It does not interfere with any existing law; it does not mute the voice of the people, and it would have become law without the governor's interference. Schwarzenegger has joined the opponents of equality who were on the losing end of segregation, anti-Semitism and women's suffrage. History shows they will eventually lose this apartheid too.
