Supreme Court Extends Marriage Equality In 11 More States   1 comment

…to quote Joe Biden’s infamous words, “this is a big f’n deal”…

The Supreme Court on Monday denied appeals from Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin in which those states sought to prohibit same-sex marriage. The decision also means couples in six other states — Colorado, Kansas, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia and Wyoming — should be able to get married soon.

The development effectively raises the number of states with legal same-sex marriage from 19 to 30 — a majority of U.S. states — and means that as many as 60 percent of Americans will be living in states that have legalized the practice.(U.S. News & World Report)

So, basically, what the Supreme Court did here is that, in declining to hear appeals from the 4th & 10th Circuits, they effectively rules in favor of overtuning same-sex marriage bans in the states directly affected – and by extension, the other states in the two particular circuits.

As the saying goes, the arc of justice is long but it truly does bend towards justice…
