Texas same-sex marriage ban ruled unconstitutional; appeal pending

In another step forward for equality and fairness, a federal judge ruled today that Texas's ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional. This comes on the heels of a similar ruling earlier this month in Virginia.

However, as in the Virginia case, the same judge stayed the decision pending a likely appeal, meaning that same-sex marriages will not begin any time soon.

Still, it's nice to see that the momentum continues, and is spreading even to red states like Texas.

Stay tuned for updates, with fingers crossed for equality. Love between two adults should be encouraged and celebrated, not forbidden by bigotry.
