Morning Sweep

The Register-Star (Columbia & Dutchess County) features two stories on Equality & Justice Day, the first focusing on participants’ stories surrounding marriage and the second on stories on GENDA and Dignity for All Students.

Edge News has Sen. Duane and NYC Council Speaker Quinn’s reactions to Maine winning marriage.

Opponents who are already challenging Maine marriage equality must collect 55,087 signatures by mid-Sept. in order to put the issue on the Nov. ballot. If they succeed, the marriage law will be stayed until after the voters weigh in.

The New York Times editorial board urges New Hampshire’s Gov. John Lynch – as well as officials in other states with same-sex marriage bills on the table – to stand on the side of fairness and make marriage equality the law.

The Times’ ed board also encourages Obama to choose a gay Supreme Court Justice to replace Souter.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said that she hopes Congress won’t interfere with D.C.’s passage of a marriage recognition law.
