Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houstonvoice.com APRIL 29,2005 5 national news briefs Navajo Council outlaws same-sex marriage WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. (AP) — The Navajo Nation has outlawed same-sex marriages on its sprawling Indian reservation. The Tribal Council voted unanimously last week in favor of the Dine Marriage Act of 2005. Dine is the Navajos' name for themselves. The act restricts a recognized union to a relationship between a man and a woman and prohibits plural marriages as well as any marriage between parents and children, grandparents and grandchildren, brothers and sisters and other close relatives. Supporters say the goal is to promote Navajo family values. "Men and women have been created in a sacred manner. We need to honor this," said Delegate Harriet Becenti. "Times have changed, and we are no longer really teaching our children. We want our people to realize that support is in existence for a man and woman." Critics of the legislation have said its sponsor, Delegate Larry Anderson of Fort Defiance, is attempting to rewrite cultural history to parallel conservative Christian backlash against gay rights across the United States. Harriet Becenti of the Navajo Nation said that marriage should be reserved as a right between a man and a woman. The Navajos approved a ban on gay marriages last week. Mass. high court to hear bid to halt same-sex marriages BOSTON (AP) — The state's highest court will consider a bid by an official from a Catholic advocacy group who wants to halt same-sex marriages until residents vote on a proposed constitutional amendment that would ban the marriages. The Supreme Judicial Court is scheduled to hear the case brought by C. Joseph Doyle, executive director of the Catholic Action League, on May 2, the Republican of Springfield reported. In court papers, Doyle said gay marriages are stifling the full debate required by the amendment process. "His ability to vote is being inhibited and interfered with," said Doyle's lawyer, Chester Darling of Andover. "The court declared an outcome before a vote was taken on the amendment." The SJC legalized gay marriage in Massachusetts by a 4-3 vote in November 2003. The first marriages began last May About 5,000 have taken place. In March 2004, legislators approved a constitutional amendment that would define marriage as between a man and woman and establish civil unions for gays. The amendment needs approval again this year or next to go on the statewide ballot in November 2006. Critics say Minnesota play promotes homosexuality MORRIS, Minn. - A show billed as child- friendly has sparked controversy among school board members at the University of Minnesota at Morris who alleged the production promotes homosexuality, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported. The play, called "Cootie Shots," has a theme of tolerance, but four school districts recently withdrew their ticket requests for 1,200 elementary school students for last week's opening, the Star Tribune reported. The play includes gay themes, according to opponents, and parents became concerned when a script from the production became public, news reports indicate. The show's director, Ray Schultz, told the Star Tribune that the play "does not mention, refer to or portray sexuality of any kind in any way." Wis. lesbian workers sue state over partner benefits MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Six lesbian state employees backed by the American Civil Liberties Union went to court, saying Wisconsin's refusal to provide health insurance for their partners violates the state constitution. If successful, their lawsuit would force all state government agencies to offer gay state employees the same health insurance and family leave benefits to their partners that are currently provided to married workers. The lawsuit filed last week claims a state law excluding gay partners of state employees from health benefits violates the Wisconsin Constitution's equal-rights protection clause, which guarantees equal treatment for people in similar situations. "It is unfair that these people who work as hard as their neighbor in the next cubicle, the teacher in the next classroom, are not able to share in the kind of benefits that their co-workers share in," said Larry Dupuis. legal director of ACLU of Wisconsin. The lawsuit comes one month after Republican lawmakers expressed their opposition to a call from the governor to provide domestic partner benefits to employees of the University of Wisconsin System. Gay man wins discrimination suit against Ore. restaurant chain GRESHAM, Ore. (AP) — A jury ruled that a gay man who worked at a local Shari's restaurant faced a hostile work environment because he failed to display traditional male behavior. The jury awarded Kevin Turner, 33, of Gresham $122,225 in the gender discrimination suit filed against Shari's Corp. in U.S. District Court. A Shari's spokesperson told the Oregonian newspaper that the company disagreed with the jury's conclusion and was considering an appeal. The franchise "strives to provide a safe and respectful environment for all our employees" said spokesperson Dick Olsen.
