It begins: Vermont begins hearings on Gay Marriage legalization

Vermont, which back in 2000 was the first US state ever to legalize civil unions, is now commencing a week of legal hearings on a same-sex marriage bill.

On Monday, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hear testimony on the bill. More hearings are scheduled for later in the week.

In the U.S., gay couples can legally marry only in Massachusetts and Connecticut.

Where are the opponents, you ask? Quite present, of course – and just as outstandingly stupid in their arguments as is expected of them.

Hundreds of gay marriage opponents are lobbying at the Vermont Statehouse. They say the bill would undermine the institution of marriage and harm children.

Can anyone tell me exactly how allowing homosexual people to undergo a legal or religious union (as is the definition of 'marriage') is dangerous to heterosexual marriage, and particularly, is dangerous towards children? I don't imagine gay or lesbian sex being any more vile than heterosexual sex if a kid should stumble into adults' bedrooms. And that's pretty much all I can think of in terms of 'danger', so really, these crackpots ought to be silenced by a fistload of dirt down their throats or something. Or gay porn magazines.
