Colorado Amendment 43 passed.
Amendment 43 proposes adding a new section to Article II of the Colorado Constitution that defines marriage in Colorado as only a union between one man and one woman.
Recognized marriages in Colorado would be:
- only between a man and a woman
- licensed, solemnized, and registered according to pre-established procedures
- common law marriages only with a man and a woman who live together and hold themselves out publicly as husband and wife
I’m not sure democracy is such a good idea if the majority of people are close minded bigots. I have yet to hear someone make a good argument in favor of this amendment that was not solely a religious one. The theocracy holds.
