Utah’s gay marriage ban struck down in appeals court

原刊於Christianity Today,2014年6月26日

The judges cited the constitutional guarantee of equal protection under the law in their decision.

“The Fourteenth Amendment protects the fundamental right to marry, establish a family, raise children, and enjoy the full protection of a state’s marital laws,” the court wrote.

“A state may not deny the issuance of a marriage license to two persons, or refuse to recognise their marriage, based solely upon the sex of the persons in the marriage union.”

A stay on the decision was granted, and the attorney general has asked the Supreme Court to hear the case.
