A ban on gay adoption: "It may be this coming year."

At the end of this article, after a lot of talk about how same-sex marriage isn't every gay person's top priority - no shit - there's this, from State Senator Nancy Schafer:

But conservatives, emboldened by the support the same-sex marriage amendment received at the polls, may have their eyes on a new prize: adoption by gay and lesbian couples.

Rumors were rampant early this year that the GOP leaders in the state Legislature would this year push through a ban on gay adoptions. It didn't happen. But state Sen. Nancy Schaefer, a strong supporter of the ban on same-sex marriage, said stay tuned.

"It may be this coming year," she said.

They lick their chops like rabid wolves, these Republicans.
