Conway Decision Praised


“Admirable, courageous and powerful”…That’s how the director of a national campaign called Freedom to Marry is describing Tuesday’s decision by Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway. Marc Solomon is talking about Conway’s choice not to appeal the ruling of a federal judge requiring Kentucky to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states and countries.

Solomon is disappointed Governor Beshear has decided to challenge the decision but he believes Conway’s position on the matter will be proven to be the right one…

Solomon says he recently formed a splinter group called Southerners for the Freedom to Marry. He says polling across the Southern states on same-sex marriage is evenly divided.
