(Harrisburg) -- Republican Governor Tom Corbett says it was inappropriate for his lawyers to compare same-sex couples who seek to marry to children.
Corbett's administration has filed a lawsuit seeking to block same-sex marriage licenses in suburban Philadelphia, where Montgomery County Register of Wills D. Bruce Hanes has issued more than 150 to gay and lesbian couples since July 24th.
State attorneys said in a court filing the gay marriage licenses have no ``value or legitimacy'' and can't be defended in court.
They compared gay and lesbian couples to children, who can't marry because a 1996 law says marriage is between a man and a woman.
Corbett released a statement calling it a poor analogy.
