Cities across the country support same-sex marriage
In a mostly symbolic vote, the Sebastopol, Calif., city council on Tuesday night unanimously adopted a nonbinding resolution endorsing same-sex marriages. The council urged the Sonoma County clerk to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and asked the board of supervisors to support civil marriage for gay and lesbian couples. The resolution also called a proposed amendment to the U.S. Constitution banning same-sex marriage "discriminatory against gay and lesbian families." The vast majority of the more than 150 people in attendance supported the council's decision, with only a handful of people speaking out against same-sex marriages. Sebastopol, located about 60 miles north of San Francisco, offers domestic-partner health benefits to same-sex couples over age 18 and opposite-sex couples over age 62.
