The order signed by Gov. Lincoln Chafee in a Statehouse ceremony directs state agencies to recognize marriages performed out of state as legal and treat same-sex married couples the same [we can pretend that same-sex couples are the same, but they will never be, no mater how much Dorothy clicks her heels] as heterosexual ones.”
