Okla. state Senate approves anti-gay marriage resolution as reported by LGBTQ Nation.
The only bright side is that there are now a few people, at least in the Oklahoma House, willing to walk out on such hateful ideology.The resolution sponsored by Norman Republican Sen. Rob Standridge was quickly adopted Tuesday on a voice vote.The House passed the resolution unanimously last week, but more than a dozen representatives walked out of the chamber instead of voting.
The resolution doesn't carry the weight of law, but that doesn't matter. In 2004 Oklahoma passed Oklahoma State Question 711 (Wikipedia link) changing the Oklahoma constitution to define marriage as only between a man and a woman. It isn't enough to outlaw someone else's love, they also have to try to stomp on them even when there isn't anything the minority can do to defend themselves.
I have one hope for the Oklahomans that support these forms of discrimination: I hope they live long enough to have to explain to their children and grandchildren why they were so against a minority that they would outlaw their love and deny them happiness.
