OLYMPIA, Wash. - The group fighting to overturn Washington’s gay marriage law started running its first TV ads in the state on Thursday.

The 30-second ad from Preserve Marriage Washington is running statewide on both broadcast and cable channels.

Referendum 74 asks voters to either approve or reject the state’s gay marriage law that was passed by the Legislature and signed by Gov. Chris Gregoire earlier this year. That law is on hold pending next month’s vote.

The ad says that because gay and lesbian couples already have all of the same legal rights of married couples under the state’s current domestic partnership law, that R-74 should be rejected.

    Without the mormons and the conservative catholics, this would not even have gotten enough signatures to go to a vote, and couples could have married in June. FOLKS IT IS NOT "EVANGELICALS AND HATERS" -- THE MORMONS AND RIGHT-WING CATHOLICS ARE THE TWO GROUPS WHO EFFECTIVELY USE THEIR MUSCLE AGAINST EQUALITY. SPEAK UP AND SHAME THEM, BECAUSE THAT IS THE ONLY WEAPON THAT WORKS. Thanks
