Tempers Flare When Senate Committee Approves Constitutional Amendment Banning Same-Sex Marriages

Tempers flared Thursday when a Senate committee approved a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.  It is reported that a shouting match ended when one Democrat strode out of the committee hearing room and the Republican chairman bid him "good riddance."  The panel voted 10-8 along party lines to send the constitutional amendment — which would prohibit states from recognizing same-sex marriages — to the full Senate.  Source.  Laurie Kellman, AP, Seattletimes.com.
