David Moye, a pop culture journalist, supports the idea of gay marriages but admits its already hard enough to find good wedding locations as well as florists, bakers and caterers without extra competition from gay and lesbian couples.
Still, he believes selling marriage licenses could help get cash-strapped California out of debt and figures the increased business for wedding-oriented businesses from homosexual receptions will boost the economy.
Thats why he advocates allowing gay marriages, except on weekends and the entire month of June.
The 40-year-old says if homosexuals pledge not to hold their receptions during what he calls the good times, it will go a long way to easing the fears of anti-gay groups.
Although implementing the plan will be a lot of work, Moye figures he can convince California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to pump it up to the gay community.
