Opponents rally against gay marriage ban

ST. PAUL (AP) -- Opponents of a proposed ban on gay marriages in Minnesota are rallying at the state Capitol -- three days after supporters of the amendment held their own rally. Several thousand people attended today's rally. The crowd is roughly the same size as the one by amendment supporters on Monday. Explorer Ann Bancroft was among the speakers today. She says President Bush touts a message of spending money. And if he really wanted to stimulate the economy, she joked he would let gay men marry. Bancroft says opponents of the proposed ban must speak loudly to "drown out the voices of a few." The Minnesota House overwhelmingly approved the measure yesterday. A Senate committee holds a hearing tomorrow.
