No it must be a joke, you have to be kidding, VIRGINIA wants to put the words Traditional Marriage on it's licence plates. It's bad enough they have passed laws banning the state from recognizing gay marriages, civil unions, and domestic partnerships and block any "contract or other arrangement" same-sex couples may enter into.
The plates would have interlocking gold wedding bands superimposed over a red heart over the legend "Traditional Marriage." The guy behind the Bill, Scott Limgamfelter.
I am not kidding, I did not make this up, go to 365gay.com.
Summary of the Bill as introduced: Special license plates; supporters of traditional marriage. Authorizes the issuance of special license plates to supporters of traditional marriage. The design of the plates is to include the legend: TRADITIONAL MARRIAGE and two interlocked golden wedding bands over a red heart.
