A federal judge on Thursday ordered Kentucky officials to recognize the marriages of same-sex couples performed out of state.

U.S. District Court Judge John Heyburn ruled that Kentucky's Constitution and laws banning recognition of such marriages "violate the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution, and they are void and unenforceable."
Ky. ordered to recognize out-of-state gay marriages

The chickens are coming home to roost once again!

Federal judge orders Kentucky to recognize same-sex marriages


Was that before or after the judge ordered them to recognize the concealed-carry permits issued by other states?

Yep, the states are falling like dominoes. The red states have got to be feeling pretty blue these days.

I wonder if this will get Alison Grimes to make a meaningful comment on same-sex marriage. So far, she's avoided it, making silly statements like, "I love my husband and I support marriage".

If anything it will make her more evasive.

Good to hear. Never thought I'd see it in Kentucky anytime soon. Glad to see.

The irony of a judge forcing people to recognize same sex marriage, as all people are equal according to the consitituion, next to a thread of cheering for a judge forcing school prayer, in volation of the first amendment...is astounding.

No person is forced to recognize anything, but the STATE is required to recognize these marriages.
