Anti-Gay Marriage Amendment BOMBS In The Senate

" The House rejected a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage, ending for another year a congressional debate that supporters of the ban hope will still reverberate in this fall's election."--from the Washington Post
The vote was 236-187. This is 47 votes short of the 2/3's majority needed to push it forward to a constitutional amendment.
Meanwhile, the world is going to shit, & we all are on the verge of WW3. The Republicans choose to keep fighting to make sure committed gay's never be allowed to marry.
I guess to Republicans, the threat of same-sex couples tying the knot is more significant & perilous than what is happening in the Middle East.
Thanks Republicans, for keeping America safe!!
