Santa Fe weighs resolution

-A A +A
By Associated Press

SANTA FE (AP) — Santa Fe Mayor David Coss and three city councilors are taking their first formal step to push state officials to recognize same-sex marriage under current New Mexico law.
Coss and Councilors Patti Bushee, Chris Calvert and Ronald Trujillo introduced a resolution at Wednesday’s council meeting that aims to persuade county clerks across the state to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The nonbinding measure also calls for state Attorney General Gary King to issue an opinion on the matter.
The council was not expected to vote on the resolution Wednesday, said city spokeswoman Jodi McGinnis Porter.
Trujillo said he and his wife have been married for 15 years.
“We have many gay friends and family in committed relationships who are raising children and are productive members of society,” he said in a statement before the meeting. “Why shouldn’t they enjoy the same protection and equality as the rest of us?”
Hours before the council meeting, the New Mexico Conference of Catholic Bishops issued a statement in defense of marriage. The bishops argued that marriage is a “life-long bond between one man and one woman” and changing the biblical definition to include same-sex couples would have “regrettable” effects.
