AZ Legislature: We banned 'mo marriage, why shouldn't everyone?

by Jeremy Hooper

 The Republican-dominated Arizona Legislature has adopted a nonbinding measure that does nothing more than encourage Congress to pass a federal marriage amendment

It seems the lawmakers didn't want to pass the measure, but they were under the impression that working towards the elimination of gay equality is now a requirement for any legislative session. Seeing as how AZ already outlaws 'mo marriage, this 'opinion-offering' piece of legislation seemed like the only option.

Said to be next on the AZ lawmakers' agenda: Urging Congress to pass an amendment that would change the name of "The Ellen Degeneres Show" to "The Lesbian Works to Destroy Society As We Know It Hour."

Way to keep those priorities in order, kids.
