We've Won! (For Now…)

Fantastic news… thanks to everyone who called their Congresspeople, Senators and other politicos about the preposterous Constitutional amendment to deny marriage rights to gays and lesbians, the amendment was DEFEATED 48 to 50. George Bush lost this battle– big time– and that should have interesting consequences when election time rolls around.

Of course the Repugnantcans won’t stop at that. They’ll do everything in their power to make sure that people like me and millions of others are denied as many equal rights as possible.

Quoth The Bushman: “Activist judges and local officials in some parts of the country are not letting up in their efforts to redefine marriage for the rest of America and neither should defenders of traditional marriage flag in their efforts,”

“It is important for our country to continue the debate on this important issue, and I urge the House of Representatives to pass this amendment,”

Seems the only one who is making this such an “important issue” is the Bushman himself. And why not? He has an election to win. Or so he thinks.

For every step forward there is a step backward. Expect one soon. But at least the steps forward are GIANT steps, while the steps backward are the tiniest of baby steps. We will win, but we MUST keep fighting.
