Gay marriage ban passes Idaho senate

I was so proud of Idaho for rejecting the gay marriage ban amendment last year, so this really disappoints me. The matter will now go up for a statewide vote, and needs only to be passed by a simple majority. I should point out that gay marriage is already illegal in Idaho, so this definitely is an "and the horse your rode in on" message toward proponents of gay marriage. I have to confess that I don't have high hopes for this being defeated, but like what Julie has to say:
Idahoans respect human rights, and we don't like the government telling us what to do. But what a sad, sorry diversion this issue continues to be.
