Morning Sweep

Gay City News and the AP write on the Democrats’ new control of the NYS Senate.

Opponents of Prop. 8 have finally, unfortunately, conceded defeat.

A CNN legal analyst predicts that the legal challenges to Prop. 8 will go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Catholic Church and Church of Latter Day Saints have both released statements saying their support of Prop. 8 doesn’t have anything to do with bigotry or discrimination – rather, they are “preserving God’s plan” and protecting the “sacred and divine institution of marriage,” respectively.

Kerry Eleveld at The Advocate writes eloquently on the change the LGBT community can hope for in the future despite the setbacks we now face.

A L.A. Times editorial also sheds a hopeful light on the disappointing passage of Prop. 8.

The passage of Prop. 8 is already negatively affecting businesses that had benefited from the same-sex wedding boom in CA.

According to the Associated Press, the same people who ran anti-gay campaigns in Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, and California are headed for New Jersey and New York to ban same-sex marriage here.

I sincerely hope that when the attacks commence, you will do more than just provide news briefs.
