HOLDING FAST AGAINST EQUALITY: Sen. Mark Pryor.;
  • HOLDING FAST AGAINST EQUALITY: Sen. Mark Pryor.;
Two more U.S. senators from conservative states — Indiana and North Dakota — have joined the Senate majority in favor of marriage equality.

Only four Democratic U.S. senators remain opposed to equality, Mark Pryor, Mary Landrieu, Tim Johnson and Joe Manchin. Perhaps Pryor can make a plus of his staunch opposition in his re-election campaign next year. Sad truth is that, while many in Arkansas might share that feeling, they won't credit Pryor for joining the side of discrimination, any more than they'll credit him for bedding down with the NRA on gun legislation intended to give the gun lobby cover against Obama administration efforts to improve gun safety.

Pryor has yet, by the way, to walk back a public statement issued in his behalf by staff that homosexuality is a matter of choice.
