A recent meeting called by Ward 5 ANC Commissioner Robert King to build support for a Prop 8 style ballot measure in DC may have had low turnout, but that's no reason to let our guard down.
The National Organization for Marriage and its $6 million budget have moved into DC to ban marriage equality in the District and, as Rev. Anthony Evans said to the Washington Blade:
We are going to force an initiative on the city to allow every District resident to have a say so on this issue of gay marriage.
First of all we do not view the gay marriage as a civil rights issue. Its not a civil rights issue.
