New Mexico Domestic Partnership Bill

Recommended Posts

Why is equality so not tolerated? Last year the Domestic Partnership bill lost in the New Mexico Senate by one vote. About an hour and a half ago, it lost again, but this time by 25 to 17. What happened to the senators that voted for us last year?

I had mentioned in another forum here about this historic legislation here in New Mexico. I feel that I need to report the sad results.

I think I'm going to go outside right now...and scream my head off.

The drive for equality is driven from below, not from the entrenched powers. If there is a perceived threat to those powers, or their way of life, they won't give an inch. That's the problem with the religious conservatives, they perceive a power shift if they let go, and they are fighting it every step of the way.

I totally agree with you, Trab, but don't understand what this threat they're perceiving is. How is offering equality to God's children a threat? How is acting on the principles of the Christian religion a threat? I guess they really believe the entire script of the bible is holy, that adulterors should be stoned to death, and that mixing fabrics is a mortal sin. Or some such nonsense.

I don't mind them enjoying their own insanity, or to be kinder, their irrationality. I object when they visit it on the rest of us.
