So Governor Bill Richardson came to speak at my school today, about education and funding and whatnot.
Afterwards, my dear friend Emily and I decided to go and talk to him. We held hands, and walked up to him. He noticed the hand-holding immeadiately. Emily said, "Hi, we were wondering if we could ask you a question? It's not really related [to education etc]."
"What do you think about gay marriage?"
Heh heh heh... Yeah. So he said that he approves of civil unions, equal benefits, no hate crimes, etc, but not "marriage." I ask why, and he said because "marriage is between a man and a woman." I said that it's unfair to have a "separate but equal" policy on marriage and asked if it was because of religion. He said yes and I said that I'm not asking the church to recognize my marriage and that this is a government/civil rights issue. He said that we would "have to do more to convince him" (what the does that mean?).
But the very best part came last. He looked Emily and I up and down and said, "...Are you two planning on getting married?"
Emily and I are just friends, of course, but none the less I said, "YES."
Ha ha ha... Woo. Good times.
