Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houstonvoice.com APRIL 8,2005 5 national news briefs Kansas voters approve constitutional ban on gay marriage TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Voters in Kansas yesterday overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex couples from marrying or entering into civil unions. With more than half of the precincts reporting, 276,876 votes, or 69 percent, were cast in favor of a constitutional amendment, with 121,836 votes, or 31 percent, opposed. Gay marriage is already banned under Kansas law, and the law is not being challenged. But supporters of the ballot measure said the ban must be in the Kansas Constitution to insulate it from legal challenge. "The marriage amendment is an unfortunate, necessary reaction to activist courts," said Republican state Attorney General Phill Kline. Among the opponents was Democratic Governor Kathleen Sebelius. Kansas became the 18th state to put a prohibition against same-sex marriage in its constitution, and the 14th to pass such an amendment since the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decision in 2003 that legalized same-sex marriage in that state. Lesbian Tiffany Muller lost her seat on the Topeka City Council to Lesbian Tiffany Muller earned only 36 percent of lawyer Richard Harmon, who captured 64 the vote and lost her seat on the Topeka, Kan City percent of the vote.

(AP) — A same sex couple married in Massachusetts cannot get an annulment in Connecticut because the state does not recognize such marriages, a judge has ruled. The ruling was the first to address an attempt by an out-of-state gay couple to dissolve --heir Massachusetts marriage, according to Mathew Staver, president and general counsel for Liberty Counsel, a conservative group that opposes gay marriage. Granting the dissolution would have recognized the validity of the marriage in another state, he said. Hartford Superior Court Judge Linda Pearce Prestley, in a March 18 ruling announced last week by Liberty Counsel, rejected an attempt by two women who live in Connecticut to annul their marriage. The women had filed a notice of intention to marry in Provincetown, Mass., but said they were unaware that the Massachusetts law excluded nonresidents. Prestley said the marriage was invalid because it violated Massachusetts law, so Connecticut had nothing to dissolve. N.Y. high court declines to hear gay marriage lawsuits ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The state's highest court last week declined to hear two cases contesting the state law that bars same-sex couples from getting married. The Court of Appeals ruled it does not have the jurisdiction to hear the cases before they first go to a lower appellate court. In February, state Supreme Court Justice Doris Ling-Cohan ruled the state law is unconstitutional, finding in favor of five same-sex couples who had been denied marriage licenses by New York City. The judge said the city clerk may not deny a license to any couple solely because the two are of the same sex. The city is appealing the judge's ruling. ACLU wants former students in religious group's Ky. suit ASHLAND, Ky (AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union has asked a federal court to let five former students and a parent join an eastern Kentucky school district in a lawsuit filed by a religious foundation over anti-harassment training. The suit, filed by the Alliance Defense Fund on behalf of a student and parents at Boyd County High School, alleges that anti- harassment training violates the student's first amendment rights of free speech and religion. The training is part of a settlement of a previous lawsuit by the Gay-Straight Alliance, a gay-rights club that had sought the right to meet on school grounds. The five students asking to get involved in the new case were plaintiffs in the earlier suit. The settlement mandates that the anti-harassment training emphasize sexual orientation. Gay Foreign Service officer wins ruling in bias case WASHINGTON - A U.S. District Court judge in February ordered a State Department review panel to reconsider whether two US. consular officials in Brazil gave a gay foreign service officer a less than favorable job performance review in 1994 based on alleged anti-gay bias. Judge Gladys Kessler ordered the Foreign Service Grievance Board to disregard an earlier decision to dismiss a complaint by Karl Olson, who charged that his two supervisors gave him a negative performance review for his duties as Chief of the Non-Immigrant Visa Section at the U.S. Consulate General's Office in Rio de Janeiro. He served in that post from 1993 to 1996. The supervisors, David Zweifel and Edwin Beffel, denied they had an anti-gay bias and claimed they gave a favorable review to another gay official at the US. consular post in Rio de Janeiro. Zweifel and Beffel said their review praised Olson for his work but said he was overly "officious" and too demanding. From staff and wire reports ONE WILD AND CRAZY PLAY!
