    NY Times: For State Representative Cathy Connolly, Wyoming’s only openly gay legislator, this winter brought a rare moment of promise: her bill to create domestic partnerships advanced further than anything like it in the history of this deep red state — sailing through committee and onto the floor of the full House. Victory seemed possible.

    K2 Radio: “We’re interested in protecting First Amendment rights across the country in situations like this where a group is being singled out because of their religious expression and that expression is being banned, even where other groups are allowed to erect similar displays and similar viewpoints in the area,” said Jonathan Scruggs, a lawyer for the Alliance Defense Fund. Scruggs said WyWatch Family Action wants to put up materials communicating members’ belief that “life begins in the womb.” “I don’t think it’s the type of situation where it’s any type of gruesome photo or anything along those lines, where it’s a baby that’s been aborted, or a fetus that’s been aborted,” Scruggs. “It’s more of a depiction of a baby in the womb.”

    Billings Gazette: Becky Vandeberghe, president of WyWatch Family Action, referred questions about the complaints to the Alliance Defense Fund. The fund attorneys sent a letter Monday to the state attorney general’s office and other state agencies on behalf of WyWatch . . . The lack of a clear state policy creates a vague situation that is problematic under the First Amendment, Jonathan Scruggs, an attorney for the Alliance Defense Fund, said Wednesday in a telephone interview. Scruggs said his group hopes the state will respond accordingly and allow WyWatch to continue displaying photos and other materials. “All we’re asking for is, not special treatment, but equal treatment,” he said.

Wyoming Senate passes same-sex “marriage” bill

    Billings Gazette: “The Wyoming Supreme Court is preparing to hear a same-sex divorce case involving two women who were married in Canada . . . . A group of state lawmakers, including House Speaker Ed Buchanan, R-Torrington, has filed a request to submit a friend-of-the-court brief in the state Supreme Court in support of the district judge’s position. The lawmakers are represented by the Alliance Defense Fund, an Arizona-based Christian civil rights group that has litigated against same-sex marriage in California. A lawyer for the Alliance Defense Fund has appeared at committee hearings in this legislative session and has spoken in favor defining marriage as existing only between one man and one woman.”
