But even if our lavender brothers and sisters do live to be 78 (see below), they’ll still have to do it outside the bonds of holy matrimony! At least, they will if a bunch of knuckledraggers who call themselves Protect Marriage have their way. Yesterday, the Trib reports, the group announced that they have collected enough signatures to put an amendment banning gay marriage on the November ballot. Oh joy, it’s 2004 all over again. Do we have any Terri Schiavo corpses we can drag out and reanimate while we’re at it?
