Nevada's wedding blues - is gay marriage ban harming us economically?

There are 3 comments on the blogs.rgj.com story from May 31, 2012, titled Nevada's wedding blues - is gay marriage ban harming us economically?. In it, blogs.rgj.com reports that:

Actions by Nevada voters in 2000 and 2002 are costing the state tourism dollars now and may for decades to come.

The state’s constitutional ban on marriage by same-sex couples may also cost Nevada its reputation as the marriage capital of the world.

It’s possible that Nevada’s voters find same-sex marriage a bigger threat than a faltering tourism industry, but if we prefer to strengthen our tourist trade, then time is running short.

It is hurting us economically, but they won't ever see this. The bigots don't care about anything but their own hatred and lies, even when they could generate a ton of cash flow just by allowing one more minor change to a law that has been changed so many times in the past. Sad.
