Yet another effort to roll back equality fails. Randy Thomasson got a wedgie from the Kern County Board of Supervisors.

As the battle continues over marriage rights in California, one county refuses to bar same-sex couples from marrying, but also won’t perform civil ceremonies, while another county has allowed six of its employees to avoid handling the marriages entirely.

On Tuesday, the Kern County Board of Supervisors rejected the “Marriage Protection Ordinance,” proposed by the Campaign for Children and Families, which would have directly contradicted the May 15th ruling by the California Supreme Court by outlawing marriages between gay couples within the county.

…”If these ‘pro-marriage’ supervisors had been at the Alamo, they probably would have turned tail and ran,” Campaign for Children and Families president Randy Thomasson opined. “It’s sad to see so-called ‘public servants’ so reluctant to sacrifice their personal comfort and set a good example for the children. They did the wrong thing by not publicly upholding marriage as a beautiful and exclusive relationship between a man and a woman.”
