Marriage Equality

2005 :: View Documents

The Green Party firmly believes that same-sex couples should have all of the same rights that heterosexual couples do and that the "Defense of Marriage Act" is a violation of civil rights. The rights of same-sex couples far outweighs the rights of what some people believe a married couple should be. In 2004 Jason West, the Mayor of New Paltz, N.Y. solemnized 24 same-sex weddings. Mr. West, a member of the Green Party, now faces prosecution for violating domestic relations law. When the California Supreme Court voided the thousands of same-sex marriage licenses issued by Mayor Gavin Newsom of San Francisco in 2004, David Cobb, the Green Party candidate for that years' presidential election said this:

"The right to marry is an equal rights issue. Courts have historically been wrong and socially behind the times and the California Supreme Court is no exception. The Dred Scott decision said a black man was property and had no rights that a white man was bound to respect. In Plessy v. Ferguson, the Court upheld Jim Crow segregation laws. The Supreme Court also upheld state laws preventing women from voting until the Nineteenth Amendment was passed, superceding all those prohibitive state laws. Like these earlier decisions, the decision of the California Supreme Court is an affront to human rights and human dignity and will not stand the test of time."
