Pro-gay McCain supports Arizona’s antigay amendment

A proposed constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage in Arizona has just gotten a big endorsement—from the state's notoriously pro-gay Republican U.S. senator, John McCain. At a Thursday night meeting with the group Protect marriage Arizona, McCain not only endorsed the proposal, he also signed a petition to place the measure on the November 2006 state ballot.  McCain has opposed an amendment to the U.S. constitution banning same-sex marriage, saying it's an issue that should be left to the states. But in a statement, McCain said he believes that "the institution of marriage should be reserved for the union of one man and one woman." (last visited August 27, 2005).
