King's widow condemns proposed gay marriage ban
POMONA, N.J. -- Calling gay marriage a civil rights issue, Coretta Scott King denounced a proposed constitutional amendment that would ban it. Constitutional amendments should be used to expand freedom, not restrict or deny it, she said. "Gay and lesbian people have families, and their families should have legal protection, whether by marriage or civil union," King said. "A constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriages is a form of gay bashing and it would do nothing at all to protect traditional marriages."
