...I told you so. And in this case, I really do wish I were wrong.
Andrew Sullivan says that if the gays play nice and don't push for rights in the next few years, then everyone will eventually "see the light" about what good people gays are. He even went so far as to say that upholding the Defense of Marriage Act (which prohibits marriage at a federal level from being extended to homosexuals) was a good thing.
But, proving that no matter how nicely gays play politics, (or interior decorate), they still hate us, Senators are again pushing for a Federal Marriage Amendement, says AP/Yahoo! News:
Senate supporters of a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage said Monday they intend to press for passage in the new Congress, brushing aside mixed signals from the White House on the issue's importance at the start of President Bush's second term.
"Who's to say whether we have enough votes or not," said Sen. Wayne Allard, R-Colo., noting that the new two-year Congress has just begun.
He said he expects GOP leaders to call for a vote before the 2006 elections and added, "I think it would be foolhardy to back off when we've got a good head of steam coming out of the election."
The article further discusses some uncertainty that the Dems may actually move to block the bill. Not that I would blame them. In any case, it's a nice way to start out the week. I think I'll go drown my political disenfranchisement sorrows in some Tazo Chai Latte...
