While the weather is staying quite chilly, the rhetoric around the TN Defense of Natural Marriage Act is heating up. Folks over in Knoxville tweeted this picture of a pickup truck that’s been roaming the streets of Nashville today:

The Nashville Scene reports on supporters of the bill who have been around the capitol building today, including one with links to domestic terrorism and another who thinks Tennesseans don’t know what country North Carolina belongs to.
The Tennessean reports on the act, which will be voted upon tomorrow:
A bill that would direct Tennessee officials to essentially ignore the U.S. Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage could cost the state more than $8.5 billion, according to the bill’s fiscal note.
