Republicans may be ousted based on gay marriage vote [UPDATED]Published 9:22am Friday, June 7, 2013 Updated 11:34am Friday, June 7, 2013
Shame on the Republican politicians in the area who voted to oppose Marriage Freedom for folks born LGBT. Bill Ingebrigtsen had the audacity to claim that “for literally thousands of years we’ve recognized marriage as between one man and one woman,” but it wasn’t outlawed in the Roman Empire until 342 C.E.
Prior to that, gay marriage was not a big deal, as any historian can tell you.
Further, we don’t live in a theocracy like Iran. The law of the land is the U.S. Constitution, including the 14th Amendment that guarantees equal protection.
A study done in states that have previously recognized equality of marriage rights has shown that 97 percent of the brave state legislators that voted in favor of it were reelected.
For those that oppose freedom for all Americans, their odds are not so good.
No wonder, since down the road people will remember politicians who opposed LGBT Marriage Freedom the same way they remember those who opposed allowing interracial marriage in conservative states a generation ago.
