This King County press release come straight from their lips to your ears:
King County marked a milestone just after noon today, with the 1,000th and 1,001st marriage licenses issued since a new marriage equality law took effect in Washington State on Dec. 6.
“December is typically our slowest month for marriage licenses, but due to the new marriage equality law, that’s not been the case this month,” said KC Recording Manager Jon Scherer. “Our volume of business this December has been more like a typical July, when we can issue as many as 2,000 marriage licenses.”
Even after handing out a record 489 marriage licenses during an 18-and-a-half hour event on Dec. 6, the Recorder’s Office has continued to see increased demand for marriage licenses. The daily volume of marriage license applications at the King County Recorder’s Office has doubled compared to a normal December.
It's like Christmas in July (July in Christmas?) for happy gay couples! Conversely, it's now snowing in Hell for conservative Christians. Everybody wins!
