Oh, Boise: Idaho 'mo marriage ban heading to voters

by Jeremy Hooper

   The marriage-banning amendment that's been making its way through the Idaho legislature today jumped its final hurdle in the race to send it to referendum. With today's Senate approval, voters will be granted the opportunity to decide this November whether or not they wanna become the latest state to somewhat tarnish their historical legacy by choosing to embrace the discriminatory measure.

Of course, even if they do deny the amendment, Idaho state law will still ban queer nuptials. Though in this current climate, my spuds, being banned only by law, and not by precious governing document, is a step in the right direction. That being the case -- fingers crossed for a less oppressive devaluation of your relationships, Idaho gays.
