This just in from the Human Rights Campaign:
Just moments ago, the Federal Marriage Amendment lost in the Senate by a stunning, bipartisan vote of 50-48. We won this historic victory for two reasons: First, because the politics of division don’t work, and second: the votes were on our side.
My sincerist thanks and appreciation to each and every American who urged their senator to vote for liberty by opposing this terrible and dangerous amendment.
Our fight for liberty for ALL is far from over. Next week, the House will take up the issue of marriage equality as well. Expect a fight. Expect vicious words and fierce debate. And expect to speak up, loud and clear, once more.
Liberty belongs to every American, regardless of race, creed, religion, nationality, gender, or sexual orientation.
