From Pam’s House Blend:
In announcing her strong support for marriage equality, Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire (D) joins not only a majority of Washington voters but a supermajority of American Catholics who support civil marriage for gay and lesbian couples. Roman Catholics make up about 16% of the population in Washington state, many of whom live in the Puget Sound region which heavily supports LGBT equality and sends pro-equality legislators (and governors!) to Olympia.
