From the Washington Post:
Bishop Harry Jackson is refusing to relent from his campaign to stop same-sex marriage in the District, despite the drubbing he took before the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics this summer.
Jackson sent out a statement Monday stating that he and other opponents of same-sex marriages will file an initiative request with the elections board Tuesday.
If approved by the board, the initiative will give District residents an opportunity to vote sometime next year on whether to legalize same-sex marriage in the District. Jackson, who believes that most city voters oppose same-sex marriage, is hoping his proposal will slow efforts in the D.C. Council to legalize those marriages.
