Gay marriage ban would enforce inequality
By JOHN W. HARRIS
I have debated numerous times if I actually would write this. After hearing of the recent articles in the newspaper regarding comments made by Laurel Rep. Jeff Laszloffy and the Montana Family Coalition, I hope that my voice might be able to reach some people and promote a little more understanding.

Penalties for issuing gay marriage licenses not likely
PHOENIX (AP) -- Some opponents of gay marriage wanted to impose criminal penalties on Arizona officials who might issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

Their proposal to make it a misdemeanor to grant gay marriage licenses, however, won't likely get off the ground at the Legislature.

Bethany Lewis, a lobbyist for the Center for Arizona Policy, which pushed the legislation, said she wasn't sure whether any court clerks in Arizona had considered issuing gay marriage licenses.

"It was more just the principle," Lewis said, noting some officials in a handful of states have issued marriage licenses to gay couples.

Poll: Most American oppose gay marriage but support other rights
Most Americans oppose gay marriage and many believe homosexuality is "against God's will" but otherwise consider themselves tolerant of gays, according to a Los Angeles Times poll published Saturday.

By a margin of 55 to 41 percent, those surveyed agreed with the statement that "if gays are allowed to marry, the institution of marriage will be degraded." About half favored a U.S. constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union between a man and a woman, while 42 percent were opposed, according to the poll published on the newspaper's Web site.
