"I think this highly contentious subject matter with two totally polar opposite views in different chambers has been sort of foisted on the six of us. I am no longer comfortable trying to come and find the middle ground. And I don't think middle ground, in this situation, can happen."

--State Rep. Amy Edmonds, the Cheyenne Republican co-chair of the Wyoming conference committee, realizing that there is no middle ground on same-sex marriage

She isn't comfortable? How sad that an elected official isn't comfortable. It seems that this elected official is either a coward or a shill for some group that isn't comfortable with equality. Too damn bad. That feeling of comfort is not yours to cling to. You are a legislator and are there to lead people toward the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. That's not a comfortable job madam.

Excuse me, but I never realized there was a middle ground on equality or the 14th amendment to the Constitution of the United States. Perhaps this "legislator" could enlighten us on said "middle ground" and how Denial of Marriage Equality furthers a legitimate government interest.

She is totally correct except The only real Choice is to Allow it under the No separate but equal clause! It is a real no brainer!
