Wash. State May Approve Gay Benefits Law

Ad Feedback

In Washington State, same-sex supporters are claiming victory as early election results show voters have approved the state's Everything but Marriage referendum.

Tom McClusky, senior vice president of the Family Research Council's legislative branch known as the FRC Action appeared on Wednesday's CBN Newschannel's Morning program to discuss the future of traditional marriage in America.  Click play to watch the interview.

But as of 8:10 a.m. Wednesday, with half of the precincts reporting, The Associated Press said the race is still too close to call.

The measure gives registered domestic partners additional state-granted rights currently given only to married couples.

The expanded law would add benefits, such as the right to use sick leave to care for a domestic partner -- and rights related to adoption, child custody and child support.

Opponents have warned that if the domestic partnership measure passed, gay marriage could be the next step in Washington State.
