On a related topic and more positive note-

The anti-gays in Washington state now have 66,109 petitition signatures (just over half the 120,577 they need), with only 29 days to go.

They got less than 6,000 this past weekend.

They will need to get over 1800 signatures every day (13,000+ per week) until Jun 6th just to get the minimum signatures, but likely need 140,000 total to get the 120,577 valid signatures.

MD is a question mark, but with any luck NC will be the last one of these things Maggie "Engine Block" and Brian "Spittle" can carry anywhere in the US.

Note-

The civil unions bill passed out of the appropriations committee, but the republicans added all the typical amendments exempting just about anyone who has any objections from having to recognize civil unions.

We'll see if the full House takes up the bill tomorrow or not.

If they can't strip those amendments out on the floor of the House, then they might as well not pass the bill.

I don't know. There is apparently a high legislative hurdle on the issue which the bigots have failed to meet in the past.

With any luck NC is going to be the last success in a referendum of this sort.(If only because all the buybull states already have them in place - 30 in total.)

There will be other setbacks along the way, but hopefully no more homophobic referenda successes.

As expected the anti-gay amendment is passing in NC about 57-43 so far.

Suprisingly the polling was fairly accuracte with a 15 point spread.

I hope you're right. But if it makes it to the WV ballot...

Anyway, we have better shots at winning WA, ME, and MD this fall!

Always looking backward... You note how the homophobes ran away from two ballot initiatives in New Hampshire: One, a constitutional amendment requiring 2/3 approval. When they couldn't get that, they suggested an "advisory" vote requiring only 50% approval. They figured out they couldn't get that, so they called off the vote.

I've never been divorced, liar, and you'll never reverse constitutional amendments preventing disenfranchisement of citizens on the legal definition of marriage. Homosexual 'marriage' is a cruel lie with no real basis in how homosexual live!

No significant percent of the homosexual population has 'married' in ANY country that allows it, and studies have shown that few such 'marriages' are even exclusive relationships.

The homosexual 'marriage' movement is a hate based political charade attacking what others hold sacred.

No homosexual relationship shares the reasons for government involvement in real marriage. No economically or physically unequal genders are involve. No child is ever born as a direct result, and no such relationship can provide a child with a father and mother. Having both is one of the most accurate statistical predictions of a child's future success in life.

Homosexual themselves overwhelmingly reject 'marriage' as an actual practice in EVERY country that allows the concocted oxymoron.

More lies from Christian fascist. That's the only thing you people rely on is lies and propaganda to demonize gay people. F*CK YOU!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arizona_Proposit...

Arizona Proposition 107 was a proposed same-sex marriage ban, put before voters by ballot initiative in the 2006 General Election. If passed, it would have prohibited the state of Arizona from recognizing same-sex marriages or civil unions. The state currently has a statute defining marriage as union between a man and a woman. It also prevents recognition of same-sex marriages performed elsewhere.[1]

This proposed amendment to the Arizona Constitution got 48.2% of the vote with 51.8% voting against, making Arizona the first U.S. state to vote down a state marriage amendment.

No one believes you, although who could finally blame anyone for denying he is blue eyed cat-Jesus photo collecting, D. Moore?

In any case if you weren't divorced it's only because you've never had a healthy, adult, intimate relationship with the opposite sex.

You have a sexual disorder. The US is (too slowly) moving towards marriage equality, as the rest of the industrialized, democratic West already has.

Rob Brooks >The main finding of this paper is that homophobia can arise, at least in part, from the suppression of desire for members of the same sex. The paper rests on a contrast between what people tell you when you ask them, and the implicit associations they make between words and concepts presented in computerised tests. The authors find that over 20 percent of people who, when asked, identify themselves as "highly straight" make implicit connections indicating some level of same-sex attraction.

Rob Brooks >These same 20 percent were also far more likely than other participants to favour anti-gay policy ideas and to be more hostile toward subjects they were led to believe were gay. Two of the authors, Richard and William Ryan, wrote a pithy summary of their finding in last week's New York Times ("Homophobic? Maybe You're Gay").
