Oklahoma House Passes Gay Marriage Bill

I mentioned a short time ago that Oklahoma was considering legislation to protect county clerks from officiating marriages, much to the dismay of some viewers here. Basically, all the couples would have to do is file a certificate with those clerks after everything else- a ceremony, if desired- is done.

Oklahoma's State House has passed that law. Whether their Governor signs it remains to be seen. 

Reason magazine's Scott Shackford supports it, as do I. He also addresses some of the criticisms- most of which seems to be coming from Democrats and gays.

I love the article's headline

Oklahoma Bill Would Legalize Gay Marriage

with the concluding sentence

But it would not legalize same-sex marriage recognition and I was wrong to indicate that it did.

Which is it?

You may want to read the comments posted at the bottom of that article. Too many (350+) for me to read them all, but interesting discussion from what I have read. My side winning, from what I've read.

Interesting fact:

The state song, Oklahoma,(from the movie of the same name), doesn't have the word GOD in any of it's lyrics.

The Okie house should amend that right quick.
