In Kentucky, a well known Bible Belt state in the United States where people have voted for a constitutional amendment stopping same-sex wedding, the movement to bring gay rights has got two factions.
One looks to overturn discrimination via a legislative path, saying that it faces long odds. The other group wants to break all the barriers to gay wedding with demonstrations as well as civil disobedience. Kentucky’s Fairness Campaign head Chris Hartman spends a lot of time lobbying for a non-discrimination law which would protect the lesbians and gays from losing their jobs or being refused housing because of their different sexual orientation.
He confesses that the law that has been proposed each year for ten years and has never been brought to a vote, has a very little scope of passing soon. After that, there is Rev. Maurice Blanchard and according to him he is less patient. Now he is asking people to join in the historic gay rights march on 26th March on the state capitol; the very same day that the Supreme Court starts hearing 2 gay marriage cases: one on a California wedding ban and another on a federal law which stops the definition of wedding to the union of man and woman.
