Gay rights group nixes CA marriage fight for now
California gay rights group says it won't lead fight to undo same-sex marriage ban in 2012
By The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' California's largest gay rights group has decided against trying to have the state's voter-approved ban on same-sex unions overturned next year.

Equality California announced Wednesday that it would not lead a ballot campaign to undo Proposition 8. The constitutional amendment limited marriage to a man and a woman five months after the state Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriages.

Executive Director Roland Palencia says polls show voters are still divided and a court challenge that could overturn the measure is still pending. As a result, he says the time is not right to undertake a risky and expensive ballot fight.



Instead, Equality California plans to devote its resources to a public education and messaging campaign to counter beliefs that allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry harms children.
