BREAKING: Marriage Equality Comes to South Carolina

BREAKING: Marriage Equality Comes to South Carolina

The U.S. Supreme Court Thursday morning denied the state of South Carolina's request for a stay on a ruling that struck down the state's ban on marriage equality, meaning same-sex couples should now be free to marry in the state. 

In a two-sentence order without additional explanation, Chief Justice John Roberts denied the request from South Carolina's Republican Attorney General, Alan Wilson, to place on hold aNovember 12 ruling that found the state's ban on same-sex marriage to be unconstitutional. The order did note that Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas would have granted the stay.  Read more »

Gay marriage’s long and messy road: What we misunderstand about this tortured legal saga

Gay marriage’s long and messy road: What we misunderstand about this tortured legal saga

Nearly 10 years ago, on the heels of the Massachusetts Supreme Court’s decision legalizing gay marriage in the state, gay-rights advocates faced a strategic decision. With the Legislature about to consider a constitutional amendment reining in the court’s decision, they could either push legislators to back civil unions as a compromise or face the full wrath of the opposition.

John Smid, Former 'Ex-Gay' Leader, Marries A Man In Oklahoma

Smid praised his new husband as "a mirror I see in every day" in a Facebook posting cited by Gay Star News.

"For most of my life, the mirror I saw reflected my mistakes, shortcomings and failures," he reportedly wrote. "The reflection I see today with Larry shows me the positive things in my life, my strengths, gifts and talents. I see how I can succeed at a mutual intimate and loving relationship."

In a 2011 appearance on Chris Matthews' "Hardball" program, Smid expressed sentiments about sexual orientation that, by all accounts, were a far cry from his earlier beliefs. Read more »
