Arkansas House Passes Resolution Reaffirming State’s Gay-Marriage Ban

no gay marriage banBack in 2004 Arkansas voters overwhelmingly approved a measure amending the state constitution to ban civil unions and define marriage as only between one man and one woman.

But just in case we didn’t get the message, the Arkansas House of Representatives just passed a resolution on Wednesday reaffirming its opposition to marriage equality and support for the Defense of Marriage Act.

Seriously, the resolution “affirming traditional marriage” has no power: It’s just a “get well soon” card for discrimination, even as the Supreme Court considers ruling DOMA unconstitutional.

It’s nice to know Arkansas lawmakers have so much time on their hands that they can spend it patting themselves on the back for being bigots.
