WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)-- The Supreme Court made history Monday, with a nondecision that effectively moved the country much closer to the day when legal gay marriage is the law of the land, the Washington Times reported.
In a move that surprised but delighted gay marriage activists, the high court declined to take up appeals from five states that ban gay marriage, paving the way for same-sex unions to immediately begin in those states, plus as many as six more states by the end of the year.
The high court's decision, issued without comment, meant the rulings in the three lower federal appeals circuits striking down bans on gay marriage in Virginia, Utah, Wisconsin, Indiana and Oklahoma are now binding law. -- [wp_colorbox_media url="http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/oct/6/supreme-court-denies-gay-marriage-appeals/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
