Memphis City Council Votes for LGBT Protections 9-4The Huffington Post reports:

The state of Tennessee is set to observe “ido4life Traditional Marriage Day” on Aug. 31, after state lawmakers passed a resolution this week to dedicate the date. Pastor Lyndon Allen, a key proponent of the measure, told WSMV that the effort was about encouraging couples to get married, pointing to the economic benefits of tying the knot. But the resolution also cites the Bible to declare that marriage is only to be “expressed only between a man and a wife,” a passage that has needled gay marriage advocates in Tennessee who note that every day in the state is traditional marriage day, as it passed a constitutional amendment in 2006 banning same-sex marriage.

In much of the us, every day is “Traditional Marriage” day. But that’s changing, and quickly.
