Anti-gay Marriage Bill Introduced in Wyoming House

An anti-gay bill has been introduced in Wyoming’s House. The AP reports:

Wyoming“The gay marriage bill would let Wyoming voters decide whether to amend the state constitution to deny state recognition of same-sex marriages performed elsewhere…A similar gay-marriage bill has stalled in the Senate Education Committee. Rep. Owen Petersen, R-Lyman, is the main sponsor of the House bill. He declined comment on the bill, saying he will not discuss it until the bill hits the floor.”

Colorado’s Focus on the Family group has been lobbying Wyoming residents to support the Senate resolution, but one of its co-sponsors says it hasn’t been brought to a committee vote yet because there isn’t enough support to pass it.

    I’d love to go to the National Park – I wonder if it reminds Cheney of where he ought to be going in the afterlife?

    Perhaps someone in Wyoming needs to also offer an amendment to the bill honoring traditional marriage which would outlaw divorce.

    “The only way around ‘Til Death Do Us Part’ should be DEATH!”

    This bill will surely revive our Nation’s economy!!!

    Honestly, have these stupid politicians been paying attention to what is happening to our country?

    When I read stories like this, why is it that the bigot that is quoted is never pictured? Why hide in the shadows, we need to make their faces synonymous with the hate and bigotry that they are trying to promote!

    If this does got through and somebody puts in some effort to campaign against it (Wyoming has not one single Gay Bar from what I know so….), I hope they don’t run a shy campaign. Seriously, have Gay Couples and Families right front in centre of the ads, go out with some dignity.
