A Christianist Trifecta

Money quote from the AP:

In a triple setback for conservatives, South Dakotans rejected a law that would have banned virtually all abortions, Arizona became the first state to defeat an amendment to ban gay marriage and Missouri approved a measure backing stem cell research.

Barry Goldwater's state voted against discriminating against gay citizens in its own constitution, despite John McCain's vociferous support. Long live Goldwater.
