Gay Rights in the Northwest

Washington's anti-discrimination bill passed the Senate today, 25-23.
Sen. Bob Oke, R- Port Orchard, said his daughter is a lesbian. He said though the issue has been a long-standing point of conflict in his family but he held his position on the issue and voted against the bill.

"That's called tough love," Oke said.

"I believe homosexuality is morally wrong," Oke said. "The Bible is very clear on this."
One step at a time, I suppose.
