      Definición de "matrimonio" divide a votantes latinos de Colorado

      31 de octubre, 2006
      Denver, 31 oct -- Una nueva encuesta revela divisiones entre los votantes y
      las iglesias latinas sobre una iniciativa que se votará el próximo 7 de
      noviembre en Colorado y que pide se incluya en la constitución estatal la
      definición tradicional de matrimonio.

      Latinos a votar en elecciones claves para demócratas

      Por su parte, el senador estatal demócrata y reverendo Rubén Díaz inició
      esta semana anuncios en español en la radio, pagados por su comité de
      campaña, en contra de Spitzer y los candidatos de su partido que apoyan el
      matrimonio entre homosexuales.

      Según Díaz, que no ha dado su respaldo a los candidatos, el 80 por ciento de
      los latinos está en contra del matrimonio entre parejas del mismo sexo.EFE

      WASHINGTON, D.C.‹ Los hispanos influirán como nunca antes en la historia en
      las elecciones de la semana entrante como votantes y como candidatos. La
      cifra récord de 5.6 millones de latinos votaría en los comicios de medio
      período, 18% más que en 2002, y habrá candidatos hispanos compitiendo en 38
      estados por escaños federales y estatales, un alza de 46% con respecto a
      1998, reportó ayer la Asociación Nacional de Funcionarios Latinos Electos y
      Designados (NALEO).

      Mantienen alquileres en casos VIH

      Nueva York/ap ‹ Más de 2,000 personas con el virus del sida y que viven en
      apartamentos subsidiados por el gobierno en la ciudad, ganaron el lunes un
      alivio de último minuto que los escuda de alzas en el pago de alquileres.

      Fallas de la democracia estadounidense

      Tampoco ha faltado en esta campaña electoral la utilización de publicidad
      negativa y, según los analistas políticos, la mayoría de los anuncios son
      infundados ataques a los demócratas en los que predominan los temas de
      contenido sexual. A un veterano de la guerra de Vietnam con probabilidades
      de ganar la elección al senado por Virginia le acusan de haber escrito
      pasajes con contenido sexual en las novelas que hace años escribió. A otro
      le acusan de haber llamado una vez a un número telefónico pornográfico. A
      Nancy Pelosi, quien asumiría el liderazgo de la mayoría en la Cámara de
      Representantes si ganaran los demócratas, se le acusa de un liberalismo tan
      radical que aún siendo heterosexual se dedicaría a promover una agenda
      homosexual.

      New Gay Rights Leave Catholics With Questions

      By Claire Heininger

      Newark's Rev. Frank Agresti is struggling with how to talk about the NJ
      decision to fellow Catholics; says it is a "tough one" because it is against
      church teaching but the couples are truly in love.

      Abortion, Gay Marriage Among Ballot Issues

      Some believe the New Jersey decision could help conservative candidates in
      states with same-sex marriage amendments on the ballot. It could especially
      help Sen. George Allen in Virginia.

      WASHINGTON, Oct. 31 ‹ The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, Inc., and 16
      lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) coalition partners are calling
      on people across the country to phone home and reach out to voters in states
      facing anti-gay ballot initiatives on the Nov. 7 ballot. The Phone Home 2006
      campaign asks people to contact the folks back home to ask them to vote
      against discrimination. The campaign is targeted at voters in Arizona,
      Colorado, Idaho, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Virginia and

      Fair Wisconsin:
      Day 7: 20 Effects of the Civil Unions and Marriage Ban

      Tuesday 10.31.06

      For Immediate Release: October 31, 2006
      Contact: Rachel Strauch-Nelson, 608-441-0143, ext. 316

      Starting 20 days out to Election Day, Fair Wisconsin is highlighting 20
      things that would be affected by the civil unions and marriage ban. Each day
      the campaign will highlight one effect, including rights or protections that
      would be outlawed for all unmarried couples by the civil unions and marriage
      ban.

      Day 7: Medical decision-making

      By giving a partner legal next of kin status, civil unions or civil marriage
      offers the ability to help a partner make critical medical decisions. By
      outlawing civil unions, the amendment would block this important protection.
      It could even seriously jeopardize existing legal arrangements for unmarried
      couples, such as medical powers of attorney. Groups like the Wisconsin
      Medical Society have come out against the ban because they are concerned
      that it could threaten the right to help a family member make life and death
      decisions.
