A sea change is making its way across the nation on gay marriage, state by state. In the last 12 months, 9 states have had federal judges ruling against same-sex marriage bans in their state, saying that a ban is unconstitutional. Michigan, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Texas have had judges ruling against same-sex marriage bans for this reason. And add Idaho to that list, that just happened today. Also Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee have been ordered to recognize same-sex marriages from other states.
Ever since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled last year that "a law forbidding the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages was unconstitutional", judges have been standing tall and seemingly united, stating plainly that a ban is unfair. We can no longer look at same-sex marriage as some second-class citizen privilege. All citizens are equal, and a union between any two should be treated as such, regardless of sexual orientation. (I'm paraphrasing from the judge in Idaho that just struck the ban down 5/13/14.)
We are fast on our way to yet another Supreme Court hearing over gay marriage. This time, hopefully, the issue will be settled once and for all. Make it legal across the country with finality, justices. You know its the right thing to do; certainly judges all across the nation already know it.
