Maryland, USA: Anti Gay Pastor Says Voters Were Tricked on Marriage Equality

Saturday, November 10th, 2012

Maryland, USA: Anti Gay Pastor Says Voters Were Tricked on Marriage EqualityGay marriage foe Rev. Derrick McCoy believes Maryland voters were deceived into voting for Question 6, the referendum which upheld a marriage law approved by lawmakers.

The referendum, which allows the law to take effect on January 1, was approved by Maryland voters by a 52.1% to 47.9% margin.

McCoy headed opposition to passage with similar messages used in other states where the issue was on the ballot, including claims that marriage equality would hurt children and restrict religious freedom.

CA: Presbyterian Reverend to Be Tried By Church for Marrying Gays

Sunday, August 22nd, 2010

A retired Presbyterian reverend goes on trial Tuesday in Napa for marrying 16 same-sex couples in 2008 when the marriages were legally recognized in California.

The Prosecuting Committee of the Presbytery of the Redwoods claims Rev. Jane Adams Spahr’s marriages between June 17 and Nov. 3, 2008 constitute a disciplinary offense in violation of the Constitution of the Presbyterian Church of the United States Book of Order.

Citing the June 20, 2008 marriage of two women, the complaint states that “officers of the Presbyterian Church USA authorized to perform marriages shall not state, imply, or represent that a same sex ceremony is a marriage. Under W-4.9001, a same sex ceremony is not and cannot be a marriage.”
