Opponents of gay marriage rally to keep institution for straights
By: BRIAN MELLEY - Associated Press

SACRAMENTO -- With the nation's first legal gay nuptials nearly a week old, former presidential candidate Alan Keyes urged hundreds of gay marriage opponents at the state Capitol on Saturday to fight to limit the institution to straight couples only.

The purpose of marriage is to produce children, something homosexuals are physically incapable of, said Keyes, who ran unsuccessfully for the Republican presidential nomination in 2000.

"To say it's between a man and a woman doesn't discriminate against same-sex couples anymore than it would be discrimination for the government to say I can't offer to fly people to the moon without benefit of a rocket ship," Keyes said. "And being as how I'm not physically equipped to fly to the moon, telling me I can't carry passengers there is not discrimination, it's common sense."

Marriage blocked for out-of-state gay couples
Massachusetts AG tells 4 clerks to stop lissuing licenses
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

The Massachusetts attorney general said yesterday that he has warned clerks in four communities to stop issuing marriage licenses to out-of-state gay couples.

"Let me make it very clear here: If there are violations of the law, the law will be enforced," Attorney General Thomas Reilly said

Officials in Provincetown, Somerville, Springfield and Worcester have openly defied Gov. Mitt Romney's order not to let nonresident same-sex couples marry.

Acting on a request from the governor, Reilly sent letters to the clerks, saying he shares Romney's interpretation of a 1913 Massachusetts law barring couples from marrying in Massachusetts if their union would not be recognized in their home state.

ICLU takes aim at state's gay marriage ban
VALPARAISO: Executive director tells Calumet chapter that same-sex marriage is a conservative cause
BY CHRIS BAROS
Times Correspondent

VALPARAISO -- The issue of same-sex marriage reached closer to home on Saturday as the Calumet chapter of the Indiana Civil Liberties Union discussed the topic at its annual spring conference at Valparaiso University's School of Law.

Fran Quigley, named Executive Director of the ICLU in March, spoke to members of the Calumet chapter about the organization's battle against Indiana's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage.

In Morrison vs. Sadler, the ICLU represent three same-sex couples seeking the right to have their relationships recognized by legal marriage. The case argues that the couples, joined by civil unions in Vermont, have had their rights to individual freedom and equal treatment violated.

The Indiana Court of Appeals has reviewed briefs and heard oral arguments in the case but a decision may be months away.

Help me Dude, I think I'm lost..... I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket. No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender". He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a San Diego cosmetic surgery doctor ,to fit into those blue suede shoes of yours. But Elvis said in the Ghetto nobody can afford a San Diego plastic surgery doctor. Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger. Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch a waaaay cool make-over show featuring some Tijuana dentists on the TV in the back of my Hummer. And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . . "You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on " Strange day or what? :-)

If you have the energy swing by cord blood ontario . I try to update my site weekly and maybe you will see something you like. I already snagged your URL and put it in my favorites.

Hi kari your blog is really great! Wow :-) As I was out blog surfing and surfing the web for detailed info on umbilical cord blood gas I stumbled across your blog.

If you would not mind, I would like to add your link to my "favorites" page to come back and read again sometime. Should you ever need it, there's lots of information on this site about umbilical cord blood gas . Again, great blog and keep up the great work!
