They’ve done it again! The DC Council is remaining true-to-form as they plan to allow notaries public to perform marriage ceremonies. They held a public hearing on the matter last Thursday as part of the process the District has to amend laws. It is ironic that just two days before the hearing, a group of DC residents (including myself) filed a Cert petition to have the Supreme Court review our case which requested that DC residents vote on marriage. So the city council is attempting to bring more radical change to our city before the dust has even settled on the controversial change in the definition of marriage in the District. The irony is heightened by the fact that GLAD is pushing for legalization of prostitution in the District because they feel that many openly gay teenagers are not accepted by their families and are forced into making a living on the streets of Washington, DC and other areas.
