Governor Gregoire announced yesterday that she is introducing legislation to
legalize gay marriage in Washington, which would make this the seventh state to do so. Voters upheld a same sex
domestic partnership bill in 2009.
Pastor Ken Hutchinson of Kirkland’s Antioch Bible
Church is the spokesman for a newly formed coalition opposed to gay marriage in Washington. Isaac Kaplan-Woolner
reached pastor Hutcherson by phone.
The legislature is set to reconvene for its regular
session next week.
