Yet one more example of how banning gay marriage hurts people

Pam's House Blend brings us news of how one Wisconsin family was by laws that keep same-sex couples from marrying.

The story of Lynn and Jean and their adopted daugher Katy is told in an ad by Fair Wisconsin, which is fighting a proposed amendment banning marriage.

Pam also notes:
Democratic candidates for office and Beltway know-and-do-nothings -- you are going to have to take a position on what basic rights you feel LGBT citizens are entitled to in this country, period. Specifically what rights as an elected official, are you willing to fight for at the local, state and federal levels. We're tired of being ATMs, or having you whisper in our ears "we're with you, just be patient while I stroke this fundie over here to try and get their vote."
My comment? Here, here! Thousands of children and their parents are suffering every day because of the refusal of this country to see them as full human beings. Enough IS enough.
