Marriage Amendment Won't Alter Companies' Benefits

Voter approval of the marriage amendment to the Kansas Constitution won't prompt communication giants Sprint and SBC to pull the plug on domestic partner benefits offered to employees, company officials said Wednesday.

That's fine with me. If companies choose to offer domestic partner benefits on their dime, that's their business. I just didn't want it imposed on us by the government.

Considering that the homosexual population of this country is estimated at around 2%, I doubt there's a big demand for these companies are likely offering these benefits out of a sense of political correctness than anything else. But hey, that's THEIR business and they're entitled to spend their money on whatever they want.
