Shocker: Bama voters approve marriage ban

by Jeremy Hooper

   By an overwhelming degree, Alabama voters yesterday approved a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.

In a related story, scared, confused gay teens in Alabama yesterday found another reason to hate themselves.

So congrats, Yellowhammer State citizens who voted for this measure of unkind -- you should be nothing less than proud. Oh, and the future producers of the 2025 documentary, "Historical Black Marks of the Early 21st Century," called to ask if you guys taped some footage from the vote for them to include in their little film; we'll put you in touch with them if you'd like.
