Court Rules Against Calif. Gay Marriage Ban
LOS ANGELES (WWJ) – A federal appeals court in California says the state’s ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional.
Denise Brogan-Kator of “Equality Michigan” is applauding the news.
“I think that anything that brings awareness of how Michigan and other states single out a group of Americans to discriminate against (unfairly) is always good,” said Brogan-Kator.
Brogan-Kator said Michigan couples who were legally married in California will now have their marriages officially recognized in that state.
Will gay marriage ever be recognized in Michigan?
Brogan-Kator said the current political climate in Lansing would probably not be receptive to a challenge of Proposal 2, however said believes that if the California case makes it to the U.S. Supreme Court, justices will likely uphold the ruling.
