Colorado used to be a bellwether state. Now it has become a breeding ground for the liberal agenda where morality is under constant attack. The latest “victory” is the legalization of same sex unions. How fast has this state turned? In 2006, Colorado voters outlawed same-sex marriages. In last year’s election, marijuana was legalized. As another example of our two-tiered justice system, the federal government is not enforcing federal laws criminalizing marijuana possession. This recently turned blue state is undergoing a transformation that will lead to its moral and economic bankruptcy.
As Colorado eviscerates the 2nd amendment, try to remember how this state used to be.
With a stroke of the governor’s pen, Colorado on Thursday legalized civil unions for same-sex couples, a major shift for a Western state where voters outlawed same-sex marriages in 2006.
The law makes Colorado the 18th state to allow gay marriage or some form of same-sex union, and its signing comes days before the Supreme Court hears two major cases on marriage equality.
For many gay Coloradans, it was a jubilant — if almost unreal — moment.
“When we started fighting for it, this was a foregone conclusion that it wasn’t going to happen,” said Jerry Cunningham, the publisher of the magazine Out Front Colorado. “It’s kind of amazing. It’s creating an awareness that we can have relationships. It validates it and legitimizes it, and says it’s O.K.”
Across Colorado, couples are already making plans. Denver’s fourth annual gay and lesbian wedding expo is being held at the end of April (“Begin planning your own dream civil union!”) and the county clerks in Denver and Boulder are planning to open their offices at midnight on May 1 — when the law takes effect — to hand out the first civil union licenses.
