GAY MARRIAGE: US activists rally for gay marriage

[Sydney Morning Herald] 10 Nov 2008--On the first Sunday after a gay marriage ban passed in California, activists rallied in defiance, including hundreds of protesters outside a mega church whose pastor brought Barack Obama and John McCain together last northern summer for a "faith forum".

About 300 gay rights advocates fanned out along footpaths leading to Saddleback Church in Lake Forest to voice their anger of the church's support of Proposition 8. The constitutional amendment approved by voters Tuesday overturned a state Supreme Court decision in May legalising same-sex unions.
