Marriage amendment re-introduced

Senate Joint Resolution 1, also known as the 'Marriage Protection Amendment' or the 'Federal Marriage Amendment' , was re-introduced yesterday by sponsor Senator Wayne Allard (R-CO). Thomas hasn't posted the full text yet, but here's what it looked like last year:

Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman. Neither this Constitution, nor the constitution of any State, shall be construed to require that marriage or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon any union other than the union of a man and a woman.

And the anti-equality fascists who co-sponsored the bill:

Sen Alexander, Lamar [TN]
Sen Burr, Richard [NC]
Sen Cornyn, John [TX]
Sen Crapo, Michael D. [ID]
Sen DeMint, James W. [SC]
Sen Dole, Elizabeth H. [NC]
Sen Enzi, Michael B. [WY]
Sen Frist, Bill [TN]
Sen Hatch, Orrin G. [UT]
Sen Hutchison, Kay Bailey [TX]
Sen Inhofe, Jim [OK]
Sen Isakson, Johnny [GA]
Sen Kyl, Jon [AZ]
Sen Lott, Trent [MS]
Sen Martinez, Mel [FL]
Sen McConnell, Mitch [KY]
Sen Roberts, Pat [KS]
Sen Santorum, Rick [PA]
Sen Sessions, Jeff [AL]
Sen Talent, Jim [MO]
Sen Thune, John [SD]
Sen Vitter, David [LA]

Whenever possible, it's necessary to yank the pointy white hoods off the well-groomed heads of these people who seem obsessed with keeping gay Americans in steerage.

And now, Frog-Boy-Love proponent Rev. Dobson and his cohort the Stay-Puft Falwell are threatening the Bush administration to support the amendment or else they'll pull their support from the Social Secuity privatization scam. Full story.
