Can't win them all.. especially where inaccuracies, and made-to-order notions of morality step in.. ridiculous, this public health bit.. But they'll come around eventually.. Stupidity is a slow-moving monster..

This is terrible and sad.:(

Too bad they did not have the courage to live up to their obviously undeserved state nickname of "The Equality State".

Unfortunately, many of the religious people there don't believe in the Golden Rule.

It's the perfect distraction to keep the country divided so the left and the right continue the plundering of the world. Russia and China aren't going to take it for very much longer however.
Now that we are going into African nations where the hell are all those left wing anti Bush war protesters? Last I checked, there are NO WMD there or in Libya. "No boots on the ground in Libya!"
What a bunch of liars, cowards, warmongers, perverts, and decadent frauds.

It actually says that?
Wow, and here I thought they might argue that it's vague.
It is blatantly going against their values.

C'mon people, this is STILL a WIN.

ONE VOTE.

5-4

The marriage bill only failed by ONE VOTE in a committe DOMINATED by Republicans 7-2.

AND the civil unions bill PASSED by a 7-2 vote.

A little perspective is in order here.

Thank you, Sheeple! I for one would love to see civil unions in any state where that is possible, but marriage equality is not yet achievable.

Having a legislature in the Plains vote in any sort of equality is a major advance!

I know!

How people can see this as anything but a victory is beyond me.

Btw, I think Wyoming is actually considered a western mountain state, not a plains state.

Yes, that is a quote. Seems pretty clear doesn't it.

Unfortunately, many hard core religious folks including Mormons, want to keep the government from following the Golden Rule.
