    By Lauren Markoe, Religion News Service/The Washington Post - November 7, 2012

    Three times over, voters made history on Election Day, endorsing moves to allow gay marriage in Maine, Maryland and Washington state.

    At the same time, Minnesota voters rejected a ballot measure that would have enshrined an anti-gay marriage law in their constitution, and neighboring Wisconsin elected Tammy Baldwin as the country’s first openly gay U.S. senator. [Read Full Story]

    Indiana gay marriage ban moves forward

    Courier Press - March 30, 2011

    By Eric Bradner

     — State lawmakers have taken a major step toward writing a ban of gay marriage and civil unions into Indiana's Constitution.

    The Senate on a 40-10 vote Tuesday approved House Joint Resolution 6, a measure that codifies into the constitution a state law that limits marriage to one man and one woman.

    It was the sixth time the Senate has approved such a ban, but since Republicans now have a wide majority in the House as well, the ban now stands its best chance ever to advance through the constitutional amendment process.

    Mayor Bloomberg Will Push For Gay Marriage

    Huffington Post - March 22, 2011

    Supporters of gay marriage in New York have a wealthy ally in Mayor Bloomberg.

    New York City's mayor said he's up to the task of pushing Republican state Senators to vote in favor of marriage equality.

    "If there's a chance to pass a bill, I will do it," Bloomberg told the Daily News. "I'll go lobby."

    Bloomberg could hold sway with Republicans because, as the News mentions, "He's been the Senate GOP's largest financial benefactor."

    Gov. Cuomo, a Democrat, has also come out in favor of gay marriage. [Read Full Story]

    Ex-President Bush's daughter supports gay marriage

    Associated Press - February 1, 2011

    NEW YORK – Former President George W. Bush's daughter Barbara has announced her support for gay marriage, breaking with her father on a key social issue but joining her mother and other prominent Republicans who back same-sex unions.

    The Human Rights Campaign, a national gay rights organization, released a video Tuesday featuring the 29-year old Bush, a New York resident who runs Global Health Corps, a nonprofit public health organization.

    "I'm a New Yorker for marriage equality," Bush says in the video. "New York is about fairness and equality and everyone should have the right to marry the person that they love." [Read Full Story]
