Gay Marriage News You Might Have Missed

A story that seems to have been largely ignored by major media sources ought to be getting a little more attention, IMHO. Missouri voters have overwhelmingly approved a state constitutional ban on gay marriage. It's not in my newspaper, I didn't hear it on radio news, and even searching online news sources for the story indicated that the primary source of information on the story comes from outraged gay advocacy groups rather than the mainstream media. Shhh! Don't let people know what happened in Missouri - it might make the masses think that gay marriage is not inevitable.

Not only that, but we banned a casino from being built. Sure, we have a few, but we don't need another.
The way I see it, everybody's coming back to Missouri (Adam-Ondi-Ahman) eventually, so we might as well make it as hospitable as we can. ^_^

The New York Times online has an artical about the vote.

Good post Jeff. Here in Ireland there has been much debate about this topic also.

(BTW: On a different note, are you planning on dealing with the DNA article on the July edition of "Usa Today" in some way on your DNA page?)
