Morning Sweep

California's Supreme Court will hear arguments tomorrow in a case that will decide the legality of the state's current ban on same-sex marriage.

An all-inclusive St. Patrick's Day Parade took place in Queens yesterday, bringing out hundreds of people. The parade was marshaled by NYC Council Speaker Christine Quinn and former Daily News Editor in Chief Pete Hamill.

Openly gay conservative/political pundit Andrew Sullivan heaped effusive praise upon Barack Obama for his positions on LGBT issues.

Both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton support equal immigration rights for same-sex couples.

The New York Times ran an article about the liberal former bishop who headed St. John the Divine Episcopal Church and led a secret gay life. The Church's current head, Rev. James Kowalski, is a dedicated member of the Pride Agenda's Pride in the Pulpit program.

A student columnist writes in the Columbia Spectator a review of a recent conference for LGBT Jews hosted by Columbia University and the Jewish Theological Seminary.

A recent poll shows that Iowans do not support same-sex marriage but do support civil unions.

Illinois' state legislature will be looking at a bill that would legalize civil unions for same-sex couples, much like the laws the New Jersey, Vermont and Connecticut currently have.

The Pope will likely speak against gay marriage when he comes to New York in mid-April.
