Arizona Mulls Gay Marriage Ban

Presidential candidate John McCain’s home state of Arizona may again vote to prohibit gay nuptials. Lawmakers are pushing to put the matter on the ballot this November. Hetero activist Cathi Herrod had this to say: “This amendment is about bringing Arizonans together on an issue enjoying widespread agreement — that marriage is a union of one man and one woman.” Yeah, because putting discrimination into a state constitution really brings people together.

Plus, the repubs wouldn’t want the annointed to lose his own state, now would they? So what better way to ensure that all the rightwing wackos come out to vote for a candidate they don’t like than to waggle the spectre of gay marriage at them?
