Elizabeth Edwards decries beating death of Sacramento man

Saturday, July 14, 2007

(07-14) 16:24 PDT Sacramento, Calif. (AP) --


Elizabeth Edwards reiterated her support for gay marriage in a speech Saturday, saying the idea that it threatens heterosexual marriage is "complete nonsense."

"I think that we have undue fear of gay marriage," she said.

Edwards was scheduled to address a prominent gay rights group in San Francisco Saturday night. Earlier in the day, she said would discuss a Sacramento man who died after his friends say he was attacked by people who mistakenly thought he was gay.

The death of Satendar Singh, 26, has galvanized Sacramento's gay community and others who see it as an outgrowth of anti-gay rhetoric coming from local evangelical Christian Slavic churches.

According to Singh's friends, the group that attacked him earlier this month as he was leaving a picnic at Lake Natomas were speaking Russian. Singh was punched once in the face and fell backward, hitting his head. He died July 5 after four days on life support.
