Love Wins | US Supreme Court Ruling on Same-Sex Marriage Will Become Permanent Tomorrow

810 0

From tomorrow, the Supreme Court’s ruling on same-sex marriage becomes permanent cross the USA – as the window to overturn it expires.

Last month, America highest court in the US ruled in Obergefell vs Hodges that equal marriage is a constitutional right, and that all 50 states must both recognise and perform same-sex marriages.

Desperate anti-gay activists have called for the ruling to be thrown out and the case to be re-heard, because two liberal justices on the court had already performed gay weddings.

However, from tomorrow even that course of action will be closed to them – as the 25-day window in which a Supreme Court ruling can be challenged expires.

This means that the ruling is permanent – and there is almost nothing opponents can do to change it, short of radically amending the Constitution.

Victory!!
