Ministers rally to push effort against lawmakers
Associated Press

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - Nearly 100 Johnson County ministers rallied Thursday in support of an effort to get rid of Kansas lawmakers who voted against a proposed state constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage.

"I don't hate gay people," said the Rev. Jerry Johnston, of the First Family Church in Overland Park. "I love all people. But this issue goes beyond homosexuality.

"This is a symptom of the moral corrosion of this country," he said. "MTV is getting a gay program. When is this going to stop?"

Johnston said Thursday's session was just the beginning of a statewide battle. Similar meetings to rally support for the drive have already been held in the Wichita area.
