An anti-gay rights ballot measure passed by Oregon voters four years ago is unconstitutional, the Oregon Court of Appeals ruled Thursday. The initiative, known as Measure 8, repealed an executive order by former Gov. Neil E. Goldschmidt prohibiting state agencies from discriminating based on sexual orientation. Measure 8 was sponsored by the Oregon Citizens Alliance, a group that this year sponsored a measure to amend the state constitution to declare homosexuality abnormal and perverse.

An anti-gay rights measure will be on Oregon's ballot in November after a court challenge failed. The Oregon Court of Appeals on Thursday unanimously reversed a lower court's decision that the proposal unconstitutionally contains more than one subject. Opponents of the measure decided not to appeal to the state Supreme Court. "On to the campaign," said Lon Mabon, chairman of the Oregon Citizens Alliance, which sponsored the measure.

On the first page of the Oregon voters' pamphlet is a remarkable disclaimer that the usually staid ballot guide contains "language that citizens and parents may find objectionable"--one more sign that this isn't an ordinary political season here. This is the year of Measure 9, an unprecedented and intensely publicized ballot initiative that would write into the Oregon constitution a moral condemnation of homosexuality and require state and local government agencies to discourage it.

Today Oregon becomes the first state in the nation to conduct a statewide vote-by-mail election, and the growing and powerful right-wing Oregon Citizens Alliance is using that ballot to bring a toned-down anti-gay measure to several rural communities. State officials say they believe that the mail-in vote may save as much as $330,000 and increase voter turnout.

While voters in other cities have loudly debated and sometimes rejected civil rights protection for homosexuals, St. Louis has quietly adopted one of the strongest gay-rights laws in the nation.
