Gays and Lesbians Oppose Man-Woman Marriage Amendment
David Catanese


     SIXTEEN YEAR OLD SARA BERGER HAS TWO MOMS. AND SHE FEELS THE LIFESTYLE HER FAMILY HAS CHOSEN IS NO THREAT TO THE TRADITIONAL FAMILY.

Sara Berger - I'm living proof that having homosexual parents is just as beneficial as having heterosexual ones.

Christina Kindel - What I don't believe is that 2 moms or 2 dads can give the same thing to their children as a mom and Dad.

WHILE STATE LAW ALREADY CLEARLY DEFINES MARRIAGE BETWEEN A MAN AND A WOMAN, THE NORTH DAKOTA FAMILY ALLIANCE CONTENDS THE CONSTITUTION NEEDS TO BE CHANGED TO PREVENT JUDGES FROM OVERTURNING THE LAW.

Court Date Set In Mass. Out-Of-State Weddings Case

Boston Bureau


(Boston, Massachusetts) Thirteen Massachusetts town clerks will square off against Attorney General Thomas Reilly in a Boston courtroom next Tuesday in a battle to allow out-of-state same-sex couples wed.

Same-sex marriage became legal in Massachusetts this spring but only residents of the state, and those gay couples who swear they intend to move here are eligible for marriage license applications.

The clerks say barring out-of-state same-sex couples is discriminatory and a violation of the commonwealth's Constitution.

At issue in the case is a directive from Reilly that the clerks must obey a 1913 law that says marriage licenses cannot be issued to couples from other states if those marriages would be "void" in the states where the couples reside.
