Gay Marriage Ban Gains Momentum In Pennsylvania

A proposed amendment to the Pennsylvania constitution that would prevent same-sex couples from marrying is expected to be introduced in the legislature next week.

State Rep. Scott W. Boyd (R-Lancaster) said the measure already has 88 co-sponsors and the number is growing. Most are Republicans but some Democrats have signed on as well.

The Pennsylvania House is controlled by the GOP.

Boyd said that the amendment would say: "Only a marriage between one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in this commonwealth, and neither the commonwealth now nor any of its political subdivisions shall create or recognize a legal status identical or substantially equivalent to that of marriage for unmarried individuals."

LGBT civil rights activists say the wording is unclear and could be used to block civil unions or domestic partnerships.

It's not unclear to me. It sounds to me like they fully intended to ban civil unions and dometic partnerships.
