Civil Unions Bill Clears Colorado House Committee

In a deliciously ironic twist, Republican-led Colorado House Judiciary Committee passed the Senate-approved civil unions bill, thanks to a 6-5 majority led by the Republican Rep. B. J. Nikkel who was originally against it.

The bill still has a few committees to go before it reaches the House itself, but the 33-32 Republican majority there means that once it does, chances are strong it will be passed. From there, it's smooth sailing as the Democrat Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper has promised to sign it.

The true beauty of this (you know, other than all that equal rights thing) is that Colorado is the home state of one of America's leading hate groups, Focus On the Family.
