RI Gay Activists Urge Governor Chafee to Veto CU Bill if it has Religious Liberties Language


ProJo reports on gay activists once again refusing to allow religious liberty language:

Calling a bill that would legalize same-sex civil unions “onerous and discriminatory,” more than a half-dozen gay advocacy groups called on Governor Chafee Tuesday to veto the legislation if it passes with language that was added to protect religious organizations and their employees.

... While gay-marriage advocates say the protections go further than those in any other state, groups such as the Rhode Island chapter of the National Organization for Marriage say they do not go far enough.
