Seattlepi.com (formerly the Seattle Post-Intelligencer) Biography

Position:
Pro to the question "Should Gay Marriage Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“Abortion, gay rights and embryonic stem cell research are among the ‘moral values’ upon which the (2004) presidential election may have turned.

On Tuesday, 11 states passed ballot measures limiting marriage to a man and a woman, in some cases even banning civil unions and domestic partner benefits…

There is no morality in the denial of legal rights based solely on whom one chooses to love.”
