ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) _ Opponents of legalizing gay marriage in Minnesota are  holding a rally at the Capitol.
 
The Thursday afternoon gathering is sponsored by Minnesota for Marriage. That's  the group that supported the failed constitutional gay marriage ban last fall
and is now trying to prevent the Legislature from making same-sex marriage legal.
 
More than a thousand supporters of gay marriage rallied at the Capitol last  month. The House Civil Law Committee is scheduled to review the gay marriage
bill next week, its first legislative hearing. Supporters say they hope to get the issue to House and Senate floor votes later this spring.
