Cali committees nix discriminatory measure
An attempt by conservatives to write marriage discrimination into the the California constitution bit the big one yesterday in Senate and Assembly committees. But don't go off and celebrate too fast, equality-lovin' peeps and peepettes. As soon as the amendment was shot down like the bigoted turkey that it is, all of those groups that exploit the terms "marriage" and "family" in the name of unbridled homophobia immediately announced that they would try to gather enough signatures to put the discriminatory measure to Cali voters in '06.
Self-appointed adjudicator of morality, Randy Thomasson (Campaign for Children and Families), is quoted by the AP as saying:
"This disturbing display of arrogance against marriage and the voters means average Californians must take matters into their own hands"
Average Californians, Rand? Don't you mean "pro-family" extremists? They aren't one and the same, kiddo.
::sigh:: Why must our victories always come with an immediate backlash?
