Gay "Marriage" bill passes Vermont Senate Easily (UPDATED)

Edging closer to being the first State to welcome gay marriage legislatively, Vermont's Senate passed S-115 by a vote of 26-4. I sit here and watch from a few blocks away, as we squander our chance to protect ourselves. (UPDATE - The bill did pass overcoming a Veto on the way.)

I still believe that we could create legal cul de sacs in which to defend marriage from a Christian point of view and used such legislation as a sort of Trojan Horse to do so. When the gay community begins to get it's way though, they will increasingly oppose any attempts to accommodate, believing themselves to be able to define their own aggressive agenda. And so the opportunity passes.
The Barre Montpelier Times-Argus - "(A) handful of Republicans join(ed) their Democratic colleagues in supporting the same-sex marriage bill, which would make Vermont the third state in the country to allow gays and lesbians to marry.

Senators are expected to easily give the bill final approval in a procedural vote today to make way for the start of hearings before the House Judiciary Committee, which will begin at the Statehouse this afternoon."
The Vermont house side of the debate will probably start this afternoon while we tilt at the windmill of stopping it's passage.

The most disgusting thing about being a conservative, both politically and sociologically is watching us pout when we don't get our way, and end up getting nothing as a result. "If we insist on perfection or nothing in any area in this fallen world, we will have nothing every time." - Dr. Francis A. Schaeffer. Perhaps worse.
