Daily NY paper vs. Gayly biased measures

by Jeremy Hooper

Picture 10-90In a not surprising yet still extremely welcome development, The New York Times editorial board has come out against the discriminatory anti-gay amendments that are up for a vote this November in California, Florida, and Arizona:

EXCERPT: Whether this important civil rights victory endures is now up to California voters. Opponents of giving gay couples the protections, dignity and respect that come with marriage are working furiously to try to overturn the court ruling through Proposition 8. It is our fervent hope that Californians will reject this mean-spirited attempt to embed second-class treatment of one group of citizens in the State Constitution.
...
Similar discriminatory measures are on the ballot in Arizona and Florida. They also should be rejected.
