Federal Judge Rules Kentucky Must Recognize Same Sex Marriages Performed in Other States

 A federal judge has just ruled that Kentucky must recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states. That ruling strikes down part of the state ban on same sex marriages. U.S. District Judge John G. Heyburn II said that Kentucky’s laws treat gay and lesbians differently in a “way that demeans them.” The constitutional ban on same-sex marriage in Kentucky was approved by voters in 2004.
