Bigotry marches on

As expected, the House passed the gay marriage ban today. The good news: the vote wasn't nearly as lopsided as last year, probably due to the DFL pickups. But nevertheless, it passed. For the recorded vote, go here.

Hope now lies in the Senate for defeating this abomination.

Dean Johnson pulled a lot of parliamentary tricks out of the bag last year to keep it from coming to a vote. All it takes is three DFLers to pass the thing. Off the top of my head, I can think of Tom Bakk and Steve Murphy. Probably Saxhaug too. Hell, Johnson himself is from a conservative rural district.

It's not quite true that the Senate is the last hope. There are still the citizens to appeal to in 2006. It's sad that nobody's idealistic enough to think there's a chance it could be shot down by the voting public.

Yeah, yeah, there's a difference between idealism and rose-colored glasses...

and I have little hope that the "Democrats" will find the guts to stand up to the biggoted radical "christianists"

House minority "leader" Matt Pretenza said there was "no caucus position" on gay marriage. Typical pathetic lack of leadership on the part of Pretenza. Can't even muster a caucus position on such a fundamental issue as this. Had the DFLers who voted for this wretched amendment voted against it, it would have failed in the House and we wouldn't even be discussing the Senate. The House DFL is going nowhere as long as Matt Pretenza is in charge.
