My soul hurts for these girls. It sounds like all they wanted in this world was to be together. Now, they are.

Still married!

November 9, 2006 at 9:02 pm (Social and Politics)

Whew.

BOSTON — Massachusetts lawmakers have recessed a constitutional convention without voting on a proposed ballot question to ban same-sex marriages. The move effectively blocks the measure from the November 2008 ballot. The convention recessed until Jan. 2, the last day the current Legislature is in session. That makes it unlikely a vote would take place in time for the question to land on the ballot in late 2008.

Earlier in the session on Thursday, lawmakers unanimously rejected an amendment that would have banned the state from recognizing all gay marriages, including the more than 8,000 that have already taken place since May 2004. A second amendment which wasn’t debated would define marriage as the union of a man and woman, but leave in place those same-sex marriages that have already taken place.

Small victories for gay rights and gay politicians.

November 8, 2006 at 8:36 am (Social and Politics)

Arizona on Tuesday became the first state ever to defeat a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage by popular vote, as returns showed the anti-gay proposal losing.

Democrat Bob Casey, son of a popular former governor, defeated incumbent Sen. Rick Santorum, a conservative and third-ranking member of the Senate GOP leadership. His support for the Iraq war and outspoken opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage alienated him from many moderates, particularly in the Philadelphia suburbs.

It was a bad day for most Republicans, but in rural Brainerd, Minn., first-term GOP state Sen. Paul Koering was headed back to the statehouse with 55 percent of the vote. He had unexpectedly strong opposition in his primary from a self-styled “values” candidate after he came out as gay. He did so, he said, because rumors flew after he was the only Republican to join Democrats in opposing an effort to force a floor vote on a constitutional same-sex marriage ban.

In Oklahoma, Al McAffrey is poised to become the first openly gay state representative.

Missouri’s Jolie Justus expects to become her state’s first out state senator.

In Seattle, Jamie Pedersen, a lead attorney on Lambda Legal’s failed bid to legalize same-sex marriage in Washington state, was expected to win the Assembly seat given up by Ed Murray, who hopes to advance to the state Senate. Both men are in safe Democratic districts and are openly gay.

And on New York’s Staten Island, gay attorney Matthew Titone is the Democratic candidate for New York state Senate, in a district that had the same GOP incumbent for 50 years. Titone got lucky: He thought he would be a “sacrifice” candidate, a placeholder for Democrats, but a week after Titone agreed to run, incumbent John Marchi announced his retirement.

Not that I live anywhere near Colorado, but this one made me giggle.

John Kerry about people who didn’t study in school being ‘stuck in Iraq.’ According to Air Force Public Affairs Officer Capt. J. Elaine Hunnicutt, ‘the soldiers’ intent in taking this photo was meant as a humorous response to the current debate in the media and the command recognizes it as such.’ (AP Photo/WTMJ-AM)”
