Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houstonvoice.com ||p? national news APRIL 23, 2004 N.C. town council members want state to repeal DOMA CHAPEL HIU, N.C. --■ In a unanimous vote, the Chapel Hill Town Council last week decided to ask state legislators to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act, WRAL-TV reported. The council plans to recognize same-sex marriages even though North Carolina does not do so under its Defense of Marriage Act, the station reported. The town leaders want the option of recognizing legal gay marriages from other states, according to WRAL. At the front of efforts to recognize same-sex unions in Chapel Hill is Mark Kleinschmidt, a gay council member who understands that state lawmakers may not even consider the town's request, WRAL reported. "I suspect it won't come up even in a committee," Mark Kleinschmidt, a gay member of the Kleinschmidt told the station. "That's fine. What Chapel Hill, N.C, council, is leading efforts to we have now is the town of Chapel Hill saying, recognize same-sex unions, despite the 'It's our public policy, here in our community, that state's current Defense of Marriage Act lim- we desire to treat all married people the same.'" iting matrimony to opposite-sex couples. Neb. police drop request for same-sex benefits OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The Omaha Police Union has announced that it is dropping its request for limited same-sex benefits. The union said in a news release last week that it was withdrawing the request for the benefits because "it is apparent that the controversy has overshadowed the importance of the overall contract and its savings to the city" The proposed contract for Omaha police would allow officers to seek sick leave to care for their same-sex domestic partners and their partner's relatives. They could also use paid leave to attend the funerals of their partners and their relatives. Tess Fogarty, a spokesperson for Mayor Mike Fahey, said the mayor's office could not comment on the contract, because it is still under negotiation. Details of city contracts are not made public until after negotiations are complete. Information about the limited benefits was leaked inappropriately and sparked a public debate on a single issue in the contract, the union said Straight couples say they were ejected from gay hotel in Key West KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) — Three heterosexual couples said they were turned away from a hotel in this gay-friendly tourist destination because of their sexual orientation, which would violate city law. The six were vacationing with a gay couple and had reservations at Big Ruby's in downtown Key West when the three straight couples were turned away. "The manager literally said. "We don't want you here,'" said JJm Pirih. who had vacationed at Big Ruby's last year with his pari ner, Jason Williams. The group, most of whom are from San Diego, was already settled in their rooms when the manager told the straight couples they would have to leave, i policy of not allowing heterosexuals on the property I'irih said. "He said he had to appeal to the majority, and the majority of guests wouldn't want straight people there," Pirih said. Key West has a city ordinance that prohibits discrimination by sexual orientation in housing and lodging. The couples were kicked out the same day sis same-sex couples sued in Key West in an attempt to overturn stale laws banning gay marriage. Pa. Supreme Court hears case over same-sex partners law PHILADELPHIA (AP) - In the face of possible implications on the nationwide debate over gay marriage, the state Supreme Court heard arguments last week over whether a city ordinance granting benefits to same-sex partners of municipal employees usurps Pennsylvania law. Chief Justice Ralph J. Cappy cautioned both parties that the issue was not a religious matter, but rather a ques- tion of whether state law pre-empted the 1998 ordinance, which was struck down by the Commonwealth Court in August 2002. William Devlin — director of the Urban Family Council, a group that promotes marriage, abstinence education and fatherhood initiatives — challenged the law. saying the City Council didn't have the authority to extend benefits to same-sex partners. Colo, judge faces impeachment after ruling in lesbian custody case DENVER (AP) State lawmakers this week were to consider whether to put a Denver district judge on trial for his ruling in a custody dispute between a former lesbian couple. On Thursday, Rep. Greg Brophy (R- Wray) planned to make the case for impeaching Denver District Judge John Coughlin for allegedly violating the religious liberty of one of the women involved in the case, who left the relationship after becoming a Christian. Coughlin ruled last April that Dr. Cheryl Clark must share custody of her adopted daughter with her former partner, Elsey McLeod. He gave Clark responsibility for the girl's religious upbringing but told her not to expose her to anything homophobic. Clark says that violated her First Amendment rights to religious freedom. Members of the House Judiciary Committee will decide after the hearing whether there is enough evidence to proceed. If the measure is backed in the House, the Senate would serve as the jury during the trial. Whether the case will yet that far isn't clear. Senate President John Andrews and Gov. Bill Owens, both staunch conservatives, oppose the move. From staff and wire reports aranatha Fellowship, MCC Partnering with Lazarus House Invite you to the 4th ANNUAL .jg-.
