Voters ban gay marriage in eleven US states

None of the 11 states allow gay marriage now. In a coast-to-coast rejection of gay marriage, voters in 11 states approved constitutional amendments yesterday limiting marriage to one man and one woman.

The amendments won, often by huge margins, in Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Ohio, Utah and Oregon, the one state where gay-rights activists hoped to prevail. The bans won by a 3-to-1 margin in Kentucky and Georgia, 3-to-2 in Ohio, and 6-to-1 in Mississippi.

"This issue does not deeply divide America," said conservative activist Gary Bauer. "The country overwhelmingly rejects same-sex marriage."

In all, 163 measures were on the ballot in 34 states, but the same-sex marriage ban seemed to attract the most attention.

The Ohio &to=http://english.pravda.ru/world/20/91/368/13782_gays.html' target=_blank>gay-marriage ban was considered the broadest of the 11 because it barred any legal status that "intends to approximate marriage", reports The Seattle Times.
