The California Supreme Court Decision that opened up the door for gays to marry had heads on the Religious Right’s exploding everywhere. Then New York’s Governor opened the backdoor (sorry couldn’t resist) for Gay marriage in New York by changing state policy to recognize gay marriages performed in other states which had even more heads exploding. Now a new study should finish off the head exploding, allowing gay marriages could actually boost the economy.
SAN FRANCISCO – Same-sex weddings could create hundreds of new jobs and pump hundreds of millions of dollars into California’s economy, according to a new study released Monday.
Gay couples are projected to spend $684 million on flowers, cakes, hotels, photographers and other wedding services over the next three years – so long as voters don’t put a halt to the same-sex marriage spree, according to a study by the Williams Institute at University of California, Los Angeles School of Law.
During the three-year period, the researchers project that about half of the state’s more than 100,000 same-sex couples will get married and another 68,000 out-of-state couples will travel to California to exchange vows. The nuptial rush is expected to create some 2,200 jobs.
There goes the neighborhood, now Liberal policies can actually help America by creating jobs. What’s next allowing dogs and cats to marry?
