Judge Rejects Kentucky’s ‘Gay Marriage’ Ban, Says Constitution is Above God
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – A federal judge appointed by former president George W. Bush rejected Kentucky’s ban on ‘same-sex marriage,’ declaring that the U.S. Constitution is the final authority on marriage, not its author, God.
U.S. District Judge John G. Heyburn II ruled Tuesday against Kentucky’s constitutional amendment that sought to protect marriage as being between one man and one woman and banned so-called marriage between members of the same-sex.
The text of Kentucky Constitutional Amendment 1 of 2004 states, “Only a marriage between one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in Kentucky. A legal status identical or substantially similar to that of marriage for unmarried individuals shall not be valid or recognized.” The referendum was approved by 75% of the voters.
