U.S. District Judge Arenda Wright Allen has ruled that Virginia’s ban on same-sex marriages is unconstitutional. The decision is stayed pending appeal, which means same-sex marriages may not begin immediately, but they are well on their way.
Chad Griffin, Human Rights Campaign (HRC) president and AFER co-founder and board member, was elated. …
“Following recent decisions in Utah, Oklahoma, Ohio and Kentucky this Virginia ruling proves that marriage equality is once again on the fast track to the United States Supreme Court. From the South to the Midwest, this historic progress sends a message that no American should have to wait for equality, no matter where they live.
“Right now this nation is divided into two Americas — one where full legal equality is nearly a reality, and the other where even the most basic protections of the law are nonexistent for loving gay and lesbian couples. We cannot and will not tolerate that patchwork of discrimination, and we won’t stop fighting until fairness and dignity reaches each and every American in all 50 states.”
