Virginia’s Ban on Same-Sex Marriage Unconstitutional

Judge Arenda L. Wright Allen of United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, in Norfolk said that “Our Constitution declares that ‘all men’ are created equal,”. “Surely this means all of us.”
This past Thursday evening a Virgina federal judge declared same-sex marriage was unconstitutional, in the strongest legal reversal yet of restrictive marriage amendments that exist throughout the South.
Judge Arenda Wright Allen issued a stay of her order while it is appealed, meaning that gay couples in Virginia will still not be able to marry until the case is ultimately resolved.
This week, a federal judge in Kentucky ruled that the state must honor same-sex marriages legally performed in other states, but the ruling did not address Kentucky’s own ban on such marriages.
