Gay Marriage Opponents Vow to Continue Fight in New Mexico

Court legalized recognition this week


Gay marriage opponents are vowing the fight is not over despite a New Mexico Supreme Court decision Thursday saying it was unconstitutional to bar same-sex couples from getting marriage licenses.

"If they are saying it is unconstitutional, we need to make it constitutional," said state Sen. William Sharer, a Farmington Republican.

Sharer said he will ask the Legislature in January to put to voters a constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage.
