Hopefully they'll pass a civil unions bill now that the Dems have control of the House & Senate & Gov office.

It's the first step to repealing their marriage ban.

That will take a vote of the people to overturn their constitutional ban. Hopefully they can get that on the ballot for 2016. In the meantime they appear to be on a fast track to civil unions this year.

It's hard to keep track of everything with so much going on in so many states. All the focus has been on the SCOTUS & Illinois, but things are happening under the radar in Rhode Island, Delaware, Hawaii, Minnesota, & New Jersey as well.

Social issues were the undoing of the republicans in 2012 and will continue to be until the far right is brought to heel.

There will always be the ignorant and intolerant (you can see them right here desperately trying to get someone's attention) but in the end equality will win out.

Go Colorado!

There is nothing equal about a so called intimate relationship with two men, two women, and a man and a woman. Out of the three, only one can bare fruit.
There is only one group of people that are obviously and desperately attention getters, you gd fool!
And yet your own state supreme court said otherwise.

Suck on that beyatch!!
