Gay Marriage Soon to be Legal in 30 States? Reply

If only the cause of overthrowing the Empire would proceed as rapidly as gay marriage.

Richmond Times-Dispatch

Gov. Terry McAuliffe today signed an executive order that directs state agencies to comply with the U.S. Supreme Court’s action that legalized same-sex marriage in Virginia.

The governor signed  Executive Order No. 30 directing all Virginia state agencies, authorities, commissions and other entities to make the necessary policy changes to comply.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear appeals from the 4th, 7th and 10th U.S. Circuit Courts that sought to keep bans on same-sex marriage in place.

The ruling immediately ended court-imposed delays on same-sex marriage in Virginia, Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah and Wisconsin.  It is also likely to result in expanding same-sex marriage to six other states, Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas, West Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

Adding those states would mean same-sex marriage is now legal in 30 states and the District of Columbia.
