Rove: Discriminating Against Gays Key to "Hopeful and Decent" Society

Reuters: President Bush will renew a quest in his second term for a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage as essential to a "hopeful and decent" society, his top political aide said on Sunday.

"He (Bush) believes that there are ways that states can deal with some of the issues that have been raised, for example, visitation rights in hospitals, or the right to inherit, or benefit rights, property rights, but these can all be dealt with at the state level, without overturning the definition of marriage as between a man and a woman."
Update, 11/8/04, 3:56 PM EST: The Salon war room notes that 60% of Americans support legal protection for gay couples.
