- California has a new bill that proposes to strike marriage from California law, period. Make everyone get a DP and let the churches do the marrying ... which, actually, is not that unwise and would remove the whole church-state question known as "marriage" in our country. (Granted, I will say this: a lot of heterosexuals will feel like it's a down-size, I'm sure, which, I think, is the point of our argument.)
- Meanwhile, a bill in Iowa has been introduced that creates gender neutral marriage, as opposed to specifically saying "marriage is between a man/woman and a man/man and a woman/woman and..." You can see how gender neutrality would be helpful there. (Iowa, btw, may be the next state to judicially pass equal marriage. Seriously. We haven't lost a court case on this one yet.)
Oh, but shit is building. Be prepared.
