Marriage Amendment Defeated in Senate

The Senate voted 49 to 48 to defeat the Federal Marriage Amendment. I am happy with this outcome but appalled at how close the vote was. This is plan to add discrimination to the Constitution that is being advocated by Christian extremists, and like "intelligent" design, I'm sure they'll continue to bring it up.
