Spineless Democrats to Join in Gay Hate Fest: TN Hate Amendment Goes to Committee Wednesday
14 Feb 2005 05:15 GMT
Republican State Rep. Dunn, sponsor of the Hate Amendment this year, last year and as many years as it takes, plans to get the amendment passed "quickly, quietly, and in a bipartisan manner." The plan is to get it into committee this week. Why does Dunn imagine the gay marriage ban will pass “quickly” and “quietly”? When the measure passed last year, it passed with no discussion. There were also no committee rooms packed with members of the progressive community, no demonstrations in the street, and certainly there was no public condemnation by our Democratic Governor. It passed the Senate with a 29-1 vote; in the House it was 85-5.
