Transcript JULY 2, 2004 www.houstonvoice.com HOUSTON VOICE I news cover story Black clergy face off in competing news conferences FMA, continued from Page 1 Allen has long opposed marriage rights for gay couples. But he did not initially join GOP colleagues sponsoring the FMA and earlier this year said that the Defense of Marriage Act, passed in 1996, was sufficient in protecting marriage. Some say that Allen, who was undecided on the amendment for months, was likely feeling pressure from conservative colleagues and lobby groups for casting a favorable vote in June to add "sexual orientation" as a protected category to the federal hate crime law. "We met with him and urged him not to let that political heat push him into a position where he felt he had to support some version of this amendment, but I think that is the reason why he supported it," said David Lampo, president of the Virginia Log Cabin Republicans, a gay partisan group. GOP leaders in Congress have indicated they will schedule a vote on the FMA sometime during the week of July 12. Sen. John Warner (R), the other senator from Virginia, remains undecided about the FMA. In Maryland, Democratic Sen. Barbara A. Mikulksi, who has a generally pro-gay voting record, has not issued a position on the Federal Marriage Amendment, and her office did not respond to repeated Blade inquiries on the subject. A spokesperson for the state's other Senate Democrat, Paul S. Sarbanes, said the senator will oppose the FMA. Equality Maryland, a gay rights group, is asking its members to contact Mikulski and Sarbanes to urge them to oppose the FMA. Combating Judicial supremacy' Last week, the House Subcommittee on the Constitution heard from two social conservatives who have long opposed gay rights. Phyllis Schafly, president of the Eagle Forum, testified in support of the FMA along with former Rep. Bill Dannemeyer (R-Calif.). The Human Rights Campaign, the nation's largest gay rights group, noted that Schafly once said gays should not work in the food-handling business and that Dannemeyer once compared the gay rights movement to Nazi Germany "Featuring testimony by two long-time opponents of equality proves the argument that this is about discrimination," said Cheryl Jacques, president of the Human Rights Campaign. Dueling news conferences Last week, the National Coalition of African-American Ministers held a news conference on Capitol Hill to voice its support for the FMA. Meanwhile, another news conference, sponsored by HRC and the National Black Justice Coalition, was also held on Capitol Hill and featured black clergy supportive of gay and lesbian equality. Jasmine Cannick, media director of the 'My opinion is that I don't care one way or the other,' said California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, responding to a question about his position on gay marriage. National Black Justice Coalition, said that social conservatives and evangelical Christians are pressuring African- American churches to support the FMA. 'Some ministers are really thinking that if we get this right, black gay people are going to rush to their churches and demand marriage." she said. "Well, that is not true." One-third of Americans unaware of FMA: poll In a nationwide survey conducted by the Barna Group, an independent cultural analysis group in California, one-third of all adults are not even aware of the FMA. The survey of 1,618 adults shows that 37 percent were unaware of the FMA. Eighty-three percent of evangelicals, 58 percent of conservatives, 56 percent of Republicans, 49 percent of Protestants and 47 percent of non-evangelical born-again Christians favor the amendment. However, 55 percent of self-described liberals, 51 percent of atheists and agnostics and 43 percent of college graduates oppi se it George Barna, who conducted the survey said that based on his findings, many born-again Christians do not want to codify their definition of marriage into law. Romney criticized over FMA In Massachusetts, Mitt Romney is being criticized by some constituents who say the first-term Republican governor is focusing too heavily on national polities and not enough on Massachusetts issues. Romney was in Washington last week to testify in support of the FMA. Last week, as the California State Assembly voted 42-27 on a resolution opposing the FMA, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger (R) said he doesn't care if gay couples wish to wed. "My opinion is that I don't care one way or the other," Schwarzenegger said in response to a question by a gay constituent at a restaurant last week. California Senate President John Burton (D-San Francisco) told the Associated Press the governor's positions were sound. For Adam and Steve For Anna and Eve Because in the beginning, they only had one choice. OFFICIAL JEWELER OF MISS CAMP AMERICA!
