Supreme Court Say No To Anti-Gay Groups

Written by 

Supreme Court of the United States

 

The Supreme Court refused the application of anti-gay groups on the law authorizing gay marriages in Washington DC.

According to an associated press, Maryland Pastor and others wished "to get a measure on the ballot to allow Washingtonians to vote on a measure that defines marriage as between a man and a woman."

"Bishop Harry Jackson led a lawsuit against the district's Board of Elections and Ethics after it refused to put that initiative on the ballot. The board ruled that the ballot question would in effect authorize discrimination.

Last year, Washington began issuing marriage licenses for same-sex couples and in 2009, it began recognizing gay marriages performed elsewhere."
