Well, there's evidence which tends to affirm.
Sen. Jon Erpenbach, D-Middleton, is drafting a proposed amendment to the state constitution that would ban discrimination and open the way for state-sanctioned civil unions.
...his proposal would honor the ban on gay marriages, but rectify potential problems in the second sentence of the referendum, which he said stripped legal rights from straight and same-sex unmarried couples. Those protections include the right to receive domestic partner benefits and have legally binding contracts, including wills.
That's not really true, Jon, but we know you have a constituency...
HERE'S the part that is enjoyable:
Erpenbach said he does not understand how the state can expect same-sex couples to continue paying taxes and being lawful citizens when they are denied protections and benefits afforded to married couples.
Let's re-write that THIS way (and see who screeches):
Erpenbach said he does not understand how the State can expect law-abiding gun-owners to continue paying taxes and being lawful citizens when they are denied the benefit of self-protection afforded to a few privileged license-holders.
