    The final death throes of desperation from the Christianistas in the Senate Chamber will be absolutely delicious!

    Governor Dayton plans to sign the bill into law in a ceremony scheduled for Tuesday, assuming it passes.

    Every day's my wedding day/
    Though baby's still in his comatose state/
    I'll dye my own Easter eggs/
    Just don't go, don't go/
    Beenie lost the sunset/
    But that's OK/
    Does Joe still bring flowers to Marylin's grave/
    And girls who eat pizza never gain weight/
    Never gain weight/
    Just don't ever gain weight

    "I don't know what it will be, Bruce," she said, "it could be an earthquake. It could be a volcano. It could be some sort of flesh eating virus. All I know is that God does not let homosexuality go unpunished, and Minneapolis is next in line for his wrath.

    Because we all know there are volcanoes in Minnesota.

    I'm at home now listening live to the debate on the Minnesota Senate floor on the marriage equality bill. It's inspiring to hear the words of the supporters and really painful to listen to the homophobic words of the opponents -- for there is absolutely no way I can wrap my head around the opponents' arguments without ascribing it to ingrained dislike and fear of gay people.

    Yea, Stephen Baldwin said he'd leave the US if Obama was elected, too. I offered to help him pack. Unfortunately the parasite is still with us.

    She's going to hate Switzerland. They have civil partnerships there and now adoption.
    Prostitution is also fully legal, both gay and straight, though pimping is not. Michelle, tsk tsk tsk, what does your god book say about prostitution?

    Yeah, god has destroyed so many other places that have accepted that all are equal - places like Canada, the UK, Massachusetts, Denmark - all gone. Not a trace left.

    Don't let the door bang you on the ass on the way out, Michelle.

    It is very painful to hear people filled with hate and ignorance and fear. We've just been through all this here in Washington - but remember that now they'll have to live with it, and some may even learn.

    Try to ignore them. The people who utter dire warnings about "unknown consequences" - unknown only to those with their heads deep in the sand. In the countries who have passes marriage equality and the states who have embraced equality - nothing has happened. Or Mr. Westroum though, whose " If marriage is about marrying who you love, where does that stop?" shows what a dreadful marriage he must have. What unhappy, silly people.

    Let 'em stew. It's their choice whether to grow up or spend their lives marinating in fear, superstition and hatred, and their loss if the do.

    Heartfelt congratulations to Minnesota!
