Hats off to the City Of Bisbee! Voting to legalize civil unions within its city Limits speaks volumes for an issue that is not going to go away. Attorney General Tom Horne wants to again waste time and taxpayer dollars on an issue he is going to have a hard time fighting. This is not about gay marriage it is about civil unions. Better yet rights of people that are in civil unions. This again will point to Discrimination something very familiar with the Courts coming from Arizona. Pure rights of citizens of Bisbee that are in civil unions. The State of Arizona will lose again and taxpayer dollars will again be wasted.

This should serve as a warning to the radical right lawmakers in our state. They are going to be facing a big uphill battle with issues like this that are suddenly being overwhelming accepted by most Americans. Thank you City of Bisbee, you have moved in the right direction for all your citizens. Horne needs a lesson from our own Pledge of Allegiance, which has the words of “Liberty and Justice for all.”
