More same-sex couples wed in New Paltz, N.Y.
April 26 2004 11:00 PM ET
At least another 10 same-sex couples were married on Saturday in New Paltz, N.Y., bringing the total number of gay weddings in the small upstate town to more than 100. Two Unitarian Universalist ministers and one interfaith minister performed the ceremonies, the Reverend Kay Greenleaf told the Poughkeepsie Journal. Six people protested during the ceremony, standing on a street corner distributing religious information. The group, Truthful Witness Campaign, grew out of the Christian Coalition, according to protester Diane Garrison. They are not an antigay group, she said; they just want everyone to know that homosexuality is an "unhealthy" and "unnatural" lifestyle and that Jesus Christ can set anyone free from any sin.
