Greg Risling COSTA MESA -- A conservative Christian leader asserted in a debate Tuesday with a local activist attorney that state Proposition 22 is needed to ensure a ban on same-sex wedlock, which he says would damage the sanctimony created between men and women. The Rev. Louis Sheldon, chairman of the Traditional Values Coalition, squared off against Jim Toledano, a leading member of the Orange County Democratic Party and chairman of the local movement that opposes the state proposition, at Whittier Law School.
