Sponsors of a ballot measure to legalize gay marriage in Oregon asked a federal judge Tuesday to make a speedy ruling in a case that challenges the state's ban on same-sex weddings. At the same time, top Oregon employers such as Nike and Intel threw their support behind ending the restrictions.
"The top-performing states in the country in terms of the economy are all states that have marriage amendments on the books," he said. "The arguments that these businesses are making are empty to begin with."
"The people of Oregon are entitled to a defense of the laws they've duly enacted," he said. "They're not looking for the attorney general or a group of businesses to substitute their judgment for the judgment that the people lawfully made in passing the marriage amendment."
