  • Court says gay couples can't divorce in Texas

    08/31/2010 4:30:19 PM PDT · by markomalley · 26 replies
    AP ^ | 8/31/2010
    DALLAS – A Texas appeals court said Tuesday that gay couples legally married in other states cannot get a divorce in Texas, where same-sex marriage is banned. The 5th Texas Court of Appeals ruled that a Dallas district court judge didn't have the authority to hear a divorce case involving two Dallas men who married in Massachusetts in 2006. The state had appealed after Judge Tena Callahan said she did have jurisdiction and dismissed its attempt to intervene. Callahan also ruled that the state couldn't limit marriage to a man and a woman, and the appeals court overturned that ruling...
  • Same-sex marriage gains GOP support

    The Washington Post ^ | August 27, 2010 | Sandhya Somashekhar
    A growing number of Republicans are breaking with the party's traditional stance to publicly state their support for same-sex marriage, a shift strategists say stems as much from demographics as from the renewed focus on economics and the "tea party" movement. A solid majority of adults younger than 30 - about six in 10 - support the right of gay and lesbian couples to legally wed, according to a Washington Post poll in February. But even many older Americans and self-identified social conservatives have changed their view on an issue that just six years ago galvanized voters in support of...

    In GOP base, a 'rebellion brewing' By: Ben Smith and Jonathan Martin April 26, 2009 07:03 AM EST A quick tour through the week’s headlines suggests the Republican Party is beginning to come to terms with the last election and that consensus is emerging among GOP elites that the party needs to move away from discordant social issues. There was Sen. John McCain's daughter and his campaign manager who last week demanded that their fellow Republicans embrace same-sex marriage. Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman – the most devoted modernizer among the party's 2012 hopefuls – won approving words from New York...

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Gov. Chet Culver on Tuesday ended days of silence on the Iowa Supreme Court's decision allowing same-sex marriage, saying he disagrees with the ruling but is "reluctant to support" amending the state constitution to reverse it. Culver said in a lengthy statement that he hadn't changed his mind that marriage is between a man and a woman: "This is a tenet of my personal faith." However, Culver said the issue before the court in its unanimous ruling Friday involved only civil marriage, and that churches and other religious institutions do not have to perform them....

    Rick Warren had a surprisingly candid response to Ann Curry's question as to whether he would change his views on homosexuality if it were established that people are born gay. The pastor of the Saddleback Church, explaining why such a finding wouldn't cause him to change his position, observed that he is inclined to want to have sex with every beautiful woman he sees, but that that doesn't make it right. Curry interviewed Warren for a Dateline segment that will be aired tonight on NBC. As noteworthy as Warren's admission was the righteous liberal anger, captured in the screengrab, Curry...

    Gay couple living American dream They fear Prop. 8 threatens their civil rights By Brian Charles The Galluccio family doesn’t look much different than most American families — except two dads head the household. “We sit down for dinner.

A recent Yes on Prop. 8 rally left the Galluccio’s steaming. “Why is my life, liberty and my pursuit of happiness a threat to anyone?” said Michael Galluccio, 46.

    California voters are set to decide on a ballot initiative banning same-sex marriage, and a recent poll shows support for the initiative is gaining ground. Proposition 8 would overrule the California Supreme Court’s May 15 decision that allowed same-sex marriage, and it would amend the state constitution to reserve marriage licenses only for a man and a woman. The state Supreme Court’s ruling made California the second state behind Massachusetts to legalize homosexual marriage. On Friday, Connecticut became the third state to allow same-sex marriage thanks to a ruling by the state Supreme Court. A poll conducted by SurveyUSA on...

    CBNNews.com October 13, 2008 CBNNews.com - A group of first graders in San Francisco took a school-sponsored field trip to a homosexual wedding. The San Francisco Chronicle reports the five-and six-year-olds were pulled out of school to "toss rose petals" on their newly married teacher. The school's interim director called it "a teachable moment." But one pro-family group called it "overt indoctrination." "This is overt indoctrination of children who are too young to understand it," said Chip White, Press Secretary for Yes on Proposition 8. The parents of two students opted out of letting them go to the gay wedding....

The exhibit, titled "Shall Not Be Recognized," was created by Jeff Pearcy and Will Fellows in response to the passage of the 2006 marriage amendment in Wisconsin that does not legally recognize same-sex relationships. The display includes 30 photographs of couples who have been together for seven to 50 years. "In recent years,...

    A federal court decision approving mandatory public school instruction for children as young as kindergarten in how to be homosexual is being allowed to stand, drawing a description of "despicable" from the parent who unsuccessfully challenged his school district's "gay" advocacy agenda. The U.S. Supreme Court without comment has refused to intervene in a case prompted by the actions of officials at Estabrook Elementary school in Lexington, Mass., who not only were teaching homosexuality to young children, but specifically refused to allow Christian parents to opt their children out of the indoctrination. The case on which WND has reported previously...

    A Michigan pro-family group has joined a nationwide boycott of a major greeting card company as a result of its promotion of the homosexual lifestyle. The American Family Association of Michigan has joined forces with several other pro-family groups around the country to boycott Hallmark over the company's new line of "same-sex couple" cards. AFA-Michigan's President Gay Glenn said, “Hallmark’s corporate position helps culturally legitimize and promote so-called homosexual ‘marriage,’ using its customers’ money to do so.” He added, “Each of us should ensure as a matter of conscience that Hallmark isn’t able to use any of our families’ money.”...

By elevating the homosexual-bisexual-transsexual agenda above the rights of everyone else, Schwarzenegger has confirmed his legacy is being the most anti-family Republican governor in California history.   "There is no gay gene, but religious freedom is a God-given right enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. So it's wrong and unfair to create new laws which make homosexual-bisexual-transsexual 'rights' superior to everyone else's rights," said Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children...

    Today, the National Stonewall Democrats issued the following statement in response by accusations from Governor Sarah Palin that sexual orientation is a choice: "John McCain chose a poor running mate, but he did not choose his sexual orientation. This is another example of why we need a pro-equality President like Barack Obama in the White House. For Governor Palin to suggest that individuals randomly choose their sexual orientation based on nothing but a whim is wrong and it repeats the talking points of the anti-gay special interests which continue to control the McCain/Palin campaign and the Republican Party."...

They took it right off the city's official Web site. "It stood out like a diamond on a donkey's behind," said Frank Schubert, co-chairman of the campaign to pass Proposition 8, the constitutional amendment on the Nov. 4 ballot to ban same-sex marriages. The Newsom moment was like a gift from fundamentalist heaven."He just looked so smug and cocky," Schubert...

    Adding sexual orientation to hate crimes will destroy America as we know it. First it would put homosexuality above religious freedoms, a violation of the first amendment. Second it would be giving special rights to a class of people, recognized only by there deviant behavior. It would be similar to saying that it will be a hate crime to call someone a criminal when they steal your car. Third. The phrase "sexual orientation" is made up by homosexuals to try to make themselves look less filthy than they really are. The purpose of the phrase is to take the spotlight...
  • Gay marriage - Proposal 2 targets a non-issue with a harmful 'remedy' (Michigan)

    Flint Journal, MI ^ | October 10, 2004 | Journal Editorial Board
    Gay marriage is not on the horizon in Michigan and there is no need for voters to amend the state constitution in a way that would unfairly harm some citizens. In drafting Proposal 2 to ban same-sex marriage, the Citizens for the Defense of Marriage went well beyond what was necessary to achieve that goal. For example, if the proposal is adopted Nov. 2, it could end health and other benefits extended by some public employers to gay couples, and perhaps encourage private companies to do likewise. Additionally, language in the proposed amendment threatens those same domestic partner benefits for...

  • SAME SEX MARRIAGE HITS HOUSE FLOOR

    The House of Representatives is expected to take action on the Federal Marriage Amendment (FMA) possibly this week. Today, September 20 has been dubbed "Congressional Call-in Day" to encourage people to contact their congressman politely persuading them to stand for marriage and vote in favor of the FMA. The legislation, H.J.Res. 56 was introduced by Rep. Musgrave (R-CO) and requires a 2/3 majority to pass the House. As you recall, in July the FMA failed to receive even the required votes to end debate in the Senate and was never brought up for a vote on the merits. However, since...

    If Texas cannot criminalize sodomy, Utah should not be able to criminalize polygamy, argued the attorney for three adults who want to live together as husband and wives. The three filed a lawsuit after they were denied a marriage license by the Salt Lake County Clerk’s Office in December. They ask that the county clerk be required to issue the marriage license, and they seek a declaration that the state’s criminal and civil bans of polygamy are unconstitutional. “What my clients want is to be able to enter into that relationship without the stigma of being branded as criminals,” civil-rights...

    Missouri voters turned out in record numbers Tuesday to express in the privacy of a voting booth what many polite Americans are reluctant to say publicly - that marriage is between a man and a woman. Under normal circumstances, the vast majority of people would slap their foreheads at this point and say, "Duh." But these are not normal times and so "normal" goes underground, emerging only at election time to find expression through the ballot. In Missouri, an unprecedented number of people turned out to vote for a state constitutional amendment clarifying the definition of marriage. The amendment passed...
