Colorado: No anti-'mo amendment this year

by Jeremy Hooper

    An attempt by House Republicans to write discrimination into the state constitution of Colorado bit it in committee yesterday. The proposed anti-'mo marriage amendment was defeated by a 6-5 vote along party lines, because queers gettin' hitched makes right wingers uncomfortable.

    Sponsor of the measure, Rep. Kevin Lundberg (pic.), gave one of those "I'm not a bigot, BUT queers are destroying marriage and I want to dash their hopes of ever achieving full equality" speeches that are oh so predictable and very played out. The least they could do is throw in some new untruths to spice things up. Like maybe they could say that wedding dresses makes lesbians' asses look fat, or that wedding cake is homophobic.

Just give us something new to discredit.
