Proposition 8 opponents seek Supreme Court case; Democratic platform may support gay marriage
The original proponents of California’s Proposition 8 are petitioning the Supreme Court to review the two decisions overturning it in the 2012-2013 term.
The Ninth Circuit had indicated that one can’t deny same-sex couples the use of the word “marriage” without turning their people into second-class citizens, available at the behest of the needs of others regardless of choice.
The Huffington Post has a link for the story by Nick Wing here.
Also, in the Washington DC area, some African-American pastors are reported to be organizing opposition to president Obama in the presidential campaign because of his reluctant support of same-sex marriage.
But Chris Johnson, of the Washington Blade, is reporting that the Democratic Party 2012 platform may well include a statement supporting same-sex marriage, link.
