Houston Still Won't Divulge Position On Same-Sex Marriage; Proclamation Text Revealed

Springfield Mayor Mike Houston still won’t say whether he agrees with the strongly-worded proclamation, issued in his name, in support of same-sex marriage. 


That proclamation, which will be read at a Statehouse rally next week, declares next Tuesday as “Marriage Equality Day” in Springfield.  It says that the value of marriage is upheld by extending it to, quote, ” committed, loving couples regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity,” and also states that “marriage discrimination is contrary to the best American traditions.” 


Houston signed the proclamation, but earlier this week told 970 WMAY News only that he issued it at the request of Alderman Cory Jobe, and that he himself has not taken an official position on the issue of same-sex marriage.
