Pastors fire on AG for not defending state's ban on gay marriage

Kathleen Kane says she won't defend state in lawsuit

Pa. Pastors Network blasts Kane on gay marriage

HARRISBURG, Pa. - The Pennsylvania Attorney General is coming under fire for her decision not to defend a law suit challenging the state's ban on same sex marriage.

The Pennsylvania Pastor's Network, which is led by former Berks County state representative Sam Rohrer, held a news conference at the state capitol in Harrisburg Wednesday morning.

The group is presenting a letter to Attorney General Kathleen Kane telling her that she is not upholding the duties of her office by refusing to defend the suit.

The suit was filed last week by the ACLU and several same sex couples, including one from Northampton County.

It seeks to overturn a law passed in 1996 that prevents gay marriage.

Kane said she will not defend the suit because the law is discriminatory.

She says Governor Tom Corbett's office is allowed to defend the suit if it chooses to.
