Restore Our Humanity

Supporters and opponents of same-sex marriage gathered for separate rallies Tuesday night at the state Capitol. Both sides said fundamental values are at stake. 

Mark Lawrence says supporters of same-sex marriage believe in the same family values as opponents. Lawrence is founder of Restore Our Humanity, and that group brought the lawsuit that overturned Utah’s Amendment 3 that defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman. He told those at an anti-

  discrimination rally that prejudice against gays and lesbians is no way to give children a healthy, loving start.

A gay rights organization announced Monday it is filing a federal lawsuit against the state of Utah.  The group Restore Our Humanity is seeking to strike down Utah’s Constitutional Amendment 3, which says that marriage consists only of the legal union between a man and a woman.
