Green says he'll oppose amendment after it's passed

In a letter to the Log Cabin Republicans, gubernatorial candidate Mark Green says he would oppose the second sentence of the amendment if it is used to thwart the rights of gay couples.

"During our meeting, Congressman Green said he would oppose any attempt to use the second sentence of the amendment to take away the rights of lesbians and gays to be able to visit their partners in the hospital under the hospital visitation statute or make medical decisions about them through medical power of attorney."

Congressman Green ought to oppose the amendment that's on the ballot since it bans civil unions and benefits for gay couples that married couples enjoy, but he has come out in support of its passage. Once again, the language of the marriage amendment courtesy of our Republican legislature:
"Only a marriage between one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in this state. A legal status identical or substantially similar to that of marriage for unmarried individuals shall not be valid or recognized in this state."
