Postponed Gay Marrage Rights

Its a tale of two states. Two very similar Pacific Northwest states, but in one, a renewed battle over allowing gay marriage has suddenly been delayed, and in the other, the fight has quickly intensified.
In Oregon, the gay rights advocacy group Basic Rights Oregon announced last month that it will not go forward with a 2012 ballot measure campaign to overturn 2004s ballot Measure 36, which defined marriage as legally recognized between one man and one woman.
In Washington, however, gay marriage backers last month rolled out a campaign to pressure the state Legislature in 2012 to legalize marriage for lesbian and gay couples.
In both states, Christian groups seeking to preserve traditional one-man, one-woman marriage reiterated that they stand ready to act to whatever and whenever such challenges happen.
