The Fight Over Gay Marriage Continues
It’s not over yet. Marriage equality is probably the biggest civil rights movement of the past decade, and it struck a major victory with the Supreme Court ruling back in June. But there’s still a ways to go. Several county clerks in Kentucky, for instance, are denying marriage licenses to gay couples on the basis of their religious convictions. One clerk has even appealed to the Supreme Court, in what her lawyers consider a “first test of the rights of public officials” since the same-sex marriage ruling. Clearly, more progress is needed.
