Federal Judge Repealed Texas Marriage Equality Ban!

Written by

A few years ago, I would never have thought that I was going to told you what I am about to told you so, yesterday, a federal judge repealed the marriage equality ban in Texas.

Texas, it is not only the second bigger American state by its number of inhabitant but it is, above all, THE conservatives' bastion and yesterday, U.S. District Judge Orlando L. Garcia declared the ban to be "state-imposed inequality!"

Do you realize that marriage equality, as reports The Washington Post, was banned in 1997! Then again in 2003! And still in 2005 with 76% of voters who approved its constitutional prohibition.

And on February 26th, 2014, the ban is repealed!

Well, unfortunately, it is necessary for me to put a stop to this burst of joy. The decision of the judge will be appealed. Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott said that he will appeal the ruling to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, in New Orleans.

U.S. Courts of Appeals are almost all very much in demand as well as the federal courts. According to Freedom to Marry, in all, there are now 47 lawsuits challenging same-sex marriage bans in 25 states.
