Civil unions bill passed out of Colorado Senate Judiciary Committee

More good news from Colorado.

The civil unions legislation, SB 172, passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday. The vote was 6 – 3. Now, it’s on to the Senate floor. The Denver Post provided commentary from both sides of the debate.
You can watch some amazing testimony from committed couples here, here and here:

And, the here’s the voice of the opposition:

Rosina Kovar of Denver, who said she was speaking on behalf of herself and her grandchildren, had urged the Senate Judiciary Committee to defeat the measure.

“I think we ought to be telling the truth about fornication and sodomy,” she said, after talking about the anus “being an exit, not an entrance.”

Yep, keeping it classy, Rosina. Watch here video here, if you want. It’s fascinating, in a bizarre way, how obsessed the homophobes are with gay sex. They think about gay sex way more than most gay people do. And, they’re so willing to talk about it publicly.

Various reports indicate the bill should pass in the full Senate. The House will be tougher.

Hat tip and thanks to Daniel Gonzalez for posting the videos.
