Video: Basic rights as a panel debate: Oregon edition

by Jeremy Hooper

I've had the pleasure of seeing Basic Rights Oregon's Jeana Frazzini speak, and she's quite awesome. Here she is awesomely and ably speaking for *civil* marriage equality, despite Maggie Gallagher and Oregon state Rep. Dennis Richardson's largely faith-motivated attempts to further obfuscate the matter (even if the latter two's faith views are purposely geared towards a civil framework):

*More Jeana:

*More from Maggie and Rep. Richardson, with more forthright faith talk. Oh, and with a bout of snippiness from Ms. Gallagher:


*RELATED: In 2007, Rep. Richardson raised eyebrows when he began an email this way:

"This past week has been like no other. On Monday the world witnessed the tragedy at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia. On Tuesday Oregon witnessed the passage of Domestic Benefits for same-sex couples (HB 2007) and Civil Rights based on sexual orientation."
A Tragic Week in Review [Rep. Richardson]


*UPDATE: More on Maggie's appearance: Video: The truth is that there are two Maggie Gallaghers [G-A-Y]
