Rocky Endorses Ref. I, Gay Marriage Ban
The traditionally conservative Rocky Mountain News endorsed Referendum I today, a measure that would give gay and lesbian couples legal rights under domestic partnerships.
In the paper’s editorial announcing the choice, the paper acknowledged that gay and lesbian partners do face legal obstacles, and that Referendum I would “level the playing field.”
The Rocky also came out in support of Amendment 43, which is a constitutional amendment that defines marriage as between one man and one woman.
From the editorial:
Ref I is the proper response to the legitimate aspirations of gay and lesbian Coloradans. Amendment 43 is a reasonable attempt by other Coloradans to preserve their right to define marriage as this state’s citizens see fit.
We hope both pass on Nov. 7.
