Debate continues over Wisconsin's gay marriage ban, with a prediction that efforts to block a portion of the constitutional ban on same sex unions will fail.
State Senator Jon Erpenbach has introduced a constitutional amendment to prohibit discrimination against gays and lesbians, which he contends would invalidate the constitutional prohibition against civil unions. Representative Mark Gundrum , who authored the constitutional amendment which passed in November, is skeptical. "The way that they'd need to negate it would be to actually put forward a constitutional amendment to repeal that sentence" said Gundrum. He added that Erpenbach's proposed amendment "would effectively end up mandaing that every school curriclem . . from four year-old kindergarten on, would have to have books like Heather has Two Mommies . . and begin indoctrinating young children into the homosexual lifestyle."
Gundrum says it would be nice if opponents of the amendment would respect what nearly sixty percent of the electorate supported in November.
