Gay marriage ban tossed

It’s all explained in this story by the AP.

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge overturned California’s same-sex marriage ban Wednesday in a landmark case that eventually could land before the U.S. Supreme Court to decide whether gays have a constitutional right to marry in America.

Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker made his ruling in a lawsuit filed by two gay couples who claimed the voter-approved ban violated their civil rights.

  1. Michigan needs to do the same thing I think its time we (both gay and straight) stand up to these right wing nut jobs. I am straight but believe in religious freedom and don’t like conservocraps shoving their beliefs down everyone elses throat.
