A Judge Repeals The Ban On Equal Marriage In Kentucky!

Written by 

Kentucky

 

 

Just after the repeal of the ban on marriage equality in Indiana, suspended last week, and the court order to recognize the marriage of two lesbians, a federal judge overturned the equal marriage ban in Kentucky!

Judge John G. Heyburn II ruled the ban violated the constitutional rights of same-sex couples from Kentucky.

“[A]s this Court has respectfully explained, in America even sincere and long-held religious views do not trump the constitutional rights of those who happen to have been out-voted,” he wrote in his opinion, as reported by the Washington PostWashington Post.

Currently, same-sex couples wishing to marry in Kentucky can not do that because, even if the ban was repealed, marriage is not yet legal. The case will probably be appealed.

The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals will begin hearing cases in Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee and so Kentucky on August 6, 2014.
