Missouri Dems filibuster law inserting antiLGBT bias in state constitution

The nonstop filibuster is now in its second day and beginning to attract widespread attention (National media are covering the filibuster and twitter users are following via the hashtag: #NotInMyState.)
     SJR39 is a sweeping attempt to codify protection for antigay bias in Missouri's constitution under the ruse of protecting ministers from being forced to perform same sex weddings, which they are not now and have never been compelled to do. When Antonin Scalia raised this red herring from the bench of the U.S. Supreme Court in 2015, he was shot down by Justices Kagan and Breyer.
     Bernie Sanders tweeted his support, and, later, so did Hillary Clinton.
