What a shame there is no presidential leadership on this issue. Instead of gay marriage being supported as a civil and humans right issue, President Obama’s belief in God forbids him to treat gays, lesbians, bisexuals and transgender people in an equal and respectful manner. Welcome the religious left.

Sounds like delay tactic to postpone bill until new governor to take office who said he will veto the bill. God Bless America.
