RE: Religious Freedom and Civil Marriage Equality Bill H275
Dear Governor Douglas,
Today was April Fool’s day, so when I first heard that the Governor of Vermont was going to veto H275 , “An Act to Protect Religious Freedom and Recognize Equality in Civil Marriage,” I didn’t believe it.
But sure enough, you did promise to veto it. Imagine that – you are just another Republican who thinks that he knows better than I do how to live my life; another Christian who thinks he is more worthy of civil sacraments than I am; another American who does to others as he would not do to himself.
I hope that you are really just fooling and that you will at the end of the day you will do what’s right, and sign H275 .
