Gay marriage ban advances

From today's Lawrence Journal World:

Gay marriage ban advances; debate scheduled

A quote that says it all for me:
"It doesn't take any rights away from homosexuals," said the Rev. Terry Fox, senior pastor at Wichita's Immanuel Baptist Church. "It allows democracy to work. It allows the people to weigh in on a moral issue."
The representatives of the people should allow us to have a voice on this matter. They should have approved it last time. In a representative form of government, the will of the people should match the will of their elected representatives. They know full well that the majority of Kansans would approve this amendment, but even in common-sense Kansas does political correctness trump the will of the people. Let's hope and pray this isn't the case this time.
