Marriage as an institution doesn't seem to be in particularly good health these days, what with so many people choosing to avoid it altogether. You'd think the people pushing the amendment would want to encourage people to tie the knot. If it's passed, indifference to the blessed state will just increase.

Thanks. I don't want to be too hard on Lehmert, lest we make her cry. Still, she's gotten it wrong in her two most recent reports on the issue.

In either case, marriage or civil unions, the idea of excluding any citizen is unconstitutional, and firmly against western values.

Either open it for all, or do away with marriage all together.

Thanks for discussing, Ed.

It's time to just call out these folks for what they are.

Let me put this as plainly as I can: Mrs. Wade, you are a bigot. In what just world is it appropriate to support a constitutional measure that forever encases an entire minority of people in second-class citizenship? Would you have supported public votes on any number of this country’s other historic civil rights measures? If your answer is yes, you’re even more of a bigot than you appear. If your answer is no, then you’re just an anti-gay bigot. Either way, you’re a bigot. (http://www.interstateq.com/archives/4891/)
