By one vote last night, gay marriage cleared another hurdle in Springfield, but final passage is very much in doubt.
Gay marriage has made it out of the state Senate and last night out of the House executive committee, but even its backers concede they don’t have the votes yet in the full House of Representatives.
That’s because the House is more conservative, more impressed with the testimony of opponents, like Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse of the Ruth Institute, a project of the National Organization for Marriage,“It is a structural injustice to a child to deprive him or her with a relationship with both parents without compelling or unavoidable reason.”
But the other side argues that gay couples make perfectly fine parents.
