The longer we can delay the vote, the less likely it will pass.

Just as likely, it may be rendered completely moot by 2016.

This has to be certain Republicans "stealth" sabotaging the various bans because they realize it will very shortly become nothing but toxic for the Republican brand.

Of course having major parts of the business community and all of higher ed oppose the most egregious versions of the ban(s) would hardly hurt efforts to stop the ban(s), too.

Don't be so smug. 2016 just may be the year that the queer genie goes back into the bottle.

Sorry pal, but you'd have better luck putting your toothpaste back in the tube.

Good luck with that!

Why would I want to? Toothpaste makes things clean. Homosexuality makes things dirty.

How's that going to happen, Benji? It's firmly established in a third of the states now, and several more have civil unions or domestic partnerships. We may see some constitutional amendments overturned by voters this year, and more in 2016.

And you're hoping for what? A constitutional amendment in Indiana that doesn't change anything for same-sex couples there? Good grief!

The States of America should take note and check out the Manifesto from John Shelby Retired Episcopal Bishop. The time has come to stop JUDGING. I am done so done. Just get hold of yourself and stop your hate. I will be getting married to my partner here Texas within the next 2 years. That gives me plenty of time to invite all the HATE MONGERS IN OUR STATE CAPITAL, HOUSE, SENENT, TO OUR BLESSED UNION.
