Lawsuit seeks answers to gay scenes cut from Lincoln Memorial video

Two civil liberties groups filed suit against the National Park Service this week demanding the release of documents that they believe show the agency caved in to right-wing demands to cut scenes of gay rights demonstrations from the Lincoln Memorial visitor center video. Two years ago, the antigay Traditional Values Coalition and other conservative groups claimed the existing video is not balanced because it shows gay rights, pro-choice, and anti-Vietnam War rallies at the memorial but not conservative demonstrations. The Park Service agreed to reedit the video, but so far has apparently not done so.
