Wyoming Senate votes to ban recognition of out-of-state same-sex marriages

The wingnuts of Darth Cheney country — Wyoming, the Equality State —  voted today to make sure that if Mary and Heather go to Canada to get married, that they legally have no relationship to one another when they visit Pa on the ranch. (365gay):

The bill passed 21-8 generally along party lines, with most Democrats opposed and most Republicans in favor of the bill.

If the bill passes the House and signed into law by the governor it would mean Wyoming gays could not travel to Canada or any of the European countries where same-sex couples can marry and have their marriages recognized when they return home.

It also would mean if a same-sex couple moved to Wyoming because of work or even visited the state their marriages would be considered void in Wyoming.
