Corbett: Gay marriage like incest
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett faces criticism after his remarks on same-sex marriage. Plus, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley hits the campaign trail and Vice …
See the original post here:
PHOENIX – Organizers of an initiative campaign for a 2014 ballot measure to legalize gay marriage in Arizona are dropping that effort in favor of waiting until 2016.
The Equal Marriage Campaign says it had broad support but that key national advocacy groups withheld backing that was needed to make a 2014.
Those groups favor waiting until 2016 to put a gay marriage measure on Arizona’s ballot and Equal Marriage Arizona says it now also supports doing that.
The advocacy groups had said 2014 didn’t provide enough time to rally support for a state constitutional amendment and that the larger voter turnout in 2016, a presidential election year, would help.
Equal Marriage Arizona is telling its supporters they can return completed petitions to the campaign for destruction.

CHICAGO (AP) – After their efforts to legalize gay marriage fizzled in Illinois this year, advocates gave their campaign a serious makeover: They called on unions, focused longer-term and recalibrated their message by using personal stories instead of civil rights comparisons.
It’s a formula picked up from their fellow activists who made Chicago an influential player in the push for immigrant rights.
Proponents will try again this fall to push gay marriage legislation through the Illinois Legislature, where they fell a few votes short in a Democrat-dominated state that’s been surprisingly resistant. But this time, they’re focusing less on lobbying lawmakers and more on priming the environment to make it easier for skittish legislators to cast favorable votes – taking cues from a movement that brought nearly 500,000 protesters to Chicago streets a few years ago and helped advance “Dream Act” goals this year.
“The immigration advocates, they really know how to get it done,” said Jim Bennett, a director for Lambda Legal, a gay rights group that’s part of the Illinois Unites for Marriage campaign. “We have a lot to learn from them.”
While social justice movements often borrow tactics from one another, experts agree the overlap in Illinois stands out among the 13 states that have embraced gay marriage – particularly in the union connections and emphasizing the development of young, long-term leaders.
At the heart of the renewed push is John Kohlhepp, a lobbyist for Illinois’ biggest state employee union. He was hired to lead a coalition that since June has grown from three organizations to roughly 50, including other unions, and raised roughly one-quarter of the campaign’s $2 million.
On the campaign trail, Kohlhepp’s energy ripples out to the nearly 20 field organizers who have been distributing leaflets at events this summer, including the State Fair and Chicago’s Bud Billiken Parade, the largest African-American parade nationwide. Kohlhepp’s cellphone rings constantly with contacts through the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Council 31, from which he has taken a leave. A seasoned lobbyist, he marks time by counting the days to Oct. 22, when legislators return to Springfield.
His involvement shows the strongest link yet between unions and the gay marriage campaign, according to Mary Bernstein, a University of Connecticut sociology professor who tracks social movements. That relationship resonates in labor-friendly Illinois, where immigrant-rights activists and unions made early links that are now hard to separate.
Unions, for example, helped Illinois become the first state to challenge the federal e-Verify immigrant worker identification system, and workers’ groups have pushed for fair immigrant wages.

On Sunday the Labor Party will launch its first campaign on marriage equality, complete with letterboxed advertisements, online video and celebrity endorsements.
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announced during the first leaders’ debate that he would introduce a marriage-equality bill within 100 days if Labor were re-elected. The party followed this with a social media campaign on gay marriage, called “It’s time”.
On Sunday it will ramp up the campaign. Pop celebrities Ricki-Lee, the Veronicas, Fun Machine, and Darren Hayes from Savage Garden have endorsed the campaign.
Finance Minister Penny Wong, who is in an openly gay partnership, said the issue of marriage equality had a greater focus in this election because so many Australians believed it was time.
“As a nation, we have always progressed towards greater equality, and marriage equality would be another important step in ensuring all Australians are treated equally,” Senator Wong said
“The ‘It’s time’ campaign is all about sharing our stories whether gay or straight, married or unmarried, young or old and sharing why marriage equality is important to Australians.

At Soccer Match, New Yorkers Say “Red Card Israeli Apartheid”

March 6, 2013
(JTA) — The posting of mock eviction notices on the doors of Harvard students to publicize the campus Israeli Apartheid Week has sparked a campus debate.
The flyers, which said that the rooms were scheduled for demolition in the next three days, were posted on student’s dormitory doors on March 2, the Harvard Crimson campus student newspaper reported.
The notices posted by the Harvard College Palestine Solidarity Committee were meant to make students think about what the committee believes is an unlawful displacement of Palestinians from their homeland at the hands of the Israeli government, according to the newspaper.
The mock eviction flyers also were posted in 2010, according to the Crimson, but did not generate as much controversy.
Students objecting to the publicity campaign sent emails complaining about the stunt through their dormitory lists. The emails generated more emails against the campaign but also some in support of it, according to the newspaper.
The Anti-Defamation League objected to the campaign.
This tactic is designed to silence and intimidate pro-Israel advocates at Harvard and campuses around the country, said Robert Trestan, ADL’s acting New England regional director. Free expression has a place on campus; however targeting the dorms of Harvard students lends itself to creating tension, isolating students and fomenting hostility.
Trestan also voiced ADL’s concern about the underlying anti-Israel message.
We recognize and support free speech, but condemn the anti-Israel views expressed in the eviction notices as factually incorrect and intolerant, he said. This is an example of how anti-Israel activism on campus can cross the line by causing supporters to feel isolated and intimidated.

A pro-gay marriage group will replace ads that featured Laura Bush after the former first lady asked to be removed from the campaign, Politico reports.

The Respect for Marriage Coalition said it is “sorry” that Bush asked to be taken out, but that the campaign will move forward. The group’s print, television and online ads launched this week and featured pro-gay marriage comments Bush made in a 2010 CNN interview: “When couples are committed to each other and love each other than they ought to have the same sort of rights that everyone has.” Also featured in the ad are two members of her husband George W. Bush’s cabinet, former Secretary of State Colin Powell and former Vice President Dick Cheney.
On Wednesday, the day the TV ads began airing, Bush’s spokeswoman Anne MacDonald told the Dallas Morning News that the former first lady “did not approve of her inclusion in this advertisement nor is she associated with the group that made the ad in any way.”
“We used public comments for this ad from American leaders who have expressed support for civil marriage,” the RMC said. “We appreciate Mrs. Bush’s previous comments but are sorry she didn’t want to be included in an ad. The ad launched a public education campaign that will now move to new and different voices that reflect the depth and breadth of our support.”

Bush has long disagreed with her husband’s stances on gay marriage, though the former president made same-sex marriage a central issue in his 2004 reelection bid. During Bush’s full CNN interview with Larry King, she explained the couple’s differences in regards to gay marriage.
“I guess that would be an area where we disagree,” Bush said. “I understand totally what George thinks and what other people think about marriage being between a man and a woman, and it’s a real reversal really for that to accept gay marriage.”
