    Democrats have always had ties to Christianity they like to fool the gay base over.

    Rest assured that when the time comes, they will answer to the much larger Black Christian and Catholic Hispanic bases they zealously court over gay issues.

    Recall many of their smaller races where one of the candidates is gay and the other is part of an ethnic majority on a dsitric, homophobia flourishes in the primary and all the DNC does is posturing about how they don’t support discrimination while having no intent of penalizing members of the base who participate exactly in that.

    That is the real tragedy in minority communities, though. We have some gay Democrats/Republicans, who also enjoy being part of the tribalism and sometimes part of the political elite, who evangelize and spread dogma for the community to be prisoner to. And so the parties just see us as a given to give token appeals to during election time, but not a sector of the population to be fearful of.

    One big reason I can see as to pass this bill is to allow civil unions to convert to marriages.

    This is a very convoluted post. The religious exemptions already exist. It will not hurt to have them codified (as long as they are not extended).

    A marriage bill is necessary because there has to be some policy regarding the conversion of civil unions to marriage. Perhaps the bill could ignore religious exemptions entirely and simply say that as of a particular date all civil unions are automatically converted to marriage and no future civil unions will be granted.

    Don’t you just love being pawns in the political battleground?
