Despite Colorado Sen. Scott Renfroe's offensive remarks that linked homosexuality to murder and said it was equal in offense, twisting scripture to support his argument in an institution that should be separate from religion, the Senate of Colorado saw past his homophobia and approved a domestic partnership bill.
The legislation would make it easier for unmarried couples in Colorado, including gays and lesbians, to make medical decisions for incapacitated partners and leave property to their partners.
The measure would apply to same and opposite-sex unmarried couples.
