From our wire: 26-Mar-2013 07:45 – U.S. SUPREME COURT JUSTICE KENNEDY: CALIFORNIA GAY MARRIAGE BAN MAY HURT RIGHTS OF GAY COUPLES’ CHILDREN
“Do not believe it” Scalia responded in Lawrence dissent, saying logic of Kennedy opinion pointed to affirming same sex marriage
In Lawrence, Kennedy wrote protections outlined don’t mean govt must recognize ‘any relationship that homosexual persons seek to enter’
Lawrence was a Supreme Court case which struck down a Texas anti-sodomy statute, and Justice Kennedy wrote it.
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – On a frosty December night last year, about two dozen guests slipped into the Alta Club, a century-old private retreat a block away from the temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints that dominates Salt Lake City.
Two men, who didn’t know each other, were the reason for the dinner: church lobbyist Bill Evans and gay rights leader Rick Jacobs. Evans was a point man for the church’s successful effort to pass California’s gay marriage ban, known as Prop 8, in 2008. Jacobs, leader of Courage Campaign, produced a 2008 commercial against the ban showing Mormon missionaries ransacking the home of a lesbian couple.
