Photo Credit: The Capital Times The backlash from the Massachusetts debacle over marriage continues to reverberate around the nation as legislative bodies set in motion amendments to ban homosexual marriage and its illegitimate cousin, civil unions.
The latest state to set the wheels in motion is Wisconsin. Lawmakers there are moving to have the proposal on the ballot for the November 2006 elections.
I believe the greatest thing the American people can do to show the proverbial line in the sand will not be crossed is to demand and approve state constitutional amendments outlawing homosexual marriage. Hopefully, that strategy will pave the way for the ultimate banning via the US Constitution.
The slippery slope is real and there is no way up from the pit should we be careless enough to fall in.
