Yet ANOTHER attempt to block same-sex marriage in Washington, DC
Blogger Pam Spaulding (left) is reporting that opponents of same-sex marriage are trying yet again to stop marriage licenses from being issued in Washington, DC on Wednesday. This time, they are going to the United States Supreme Court. Court papers filed Monday with Chief Justice John Roberts argue that Washington residents should be able to vote on the matter. Local courts have rejected the opponents' arguments. The gay marriage opponents include a Baptist minister, Walter E. Fauntroy, who was Washington's delegate in the House for nearly 20 years.
