Judge Overturns Virginia's Ban of Same Sex Marriage
A federal judge has overturned a voter-approved ban in Virginia of same-sex marriage. Echoing similar decisions, a federal judge ruled that it violates the 14th Amendment. The order was stayed while it's appealed, meaning no marriages can take place. Some hailed the ruling, others did not, including Delegate Terry Kilgore of Scott County. He said, “You know I just don’t think it’s right for a federal judge to override the voters of Virginia and the legislature of Virginia…” Both sides of the issue believe the case won't be settled until the Supreme Court decides to hear it, or a case like it. Earlier this week, a judge in Kentucky ruled that state must recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states. (LM)
