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.

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.”

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