Washington State Senate Panel Advances Marriage Equality Bill

WashingtonYesterday, Washington state's marriage equality bill made it over its first hurdle in the Senate:

The Government Operations, Tribal Relations & Elections Committee approved the measure with a 4-3 vote Thursday. The bill is expected to head to a floor vote next, though a date has not yet been determined. Bills have been introduced in the House and Senate and both had public hearings on Monday. There are already enough votes to pass the measure both the House and the Senate.

So what does this mean?

HutchersonWell, it means we're one step closer to man-horse marriage, according to the spokesman for the largest anti-gay group opposing the bill, Pastor Ken Hutcherson.

"If this law is passed, what is going to happen? Now ask your guests in the studio. Do they believe that if they change the definition of marriage being between one man and one woman, what is going to stop two men one woman, two women one man, one man against a horse, one many with a boy, one man with anything?"
