Hell yes! This is what we like to hear!
The Supreme Court has rejected an appeal from Maryland's Bishop Harry Jackson and others that was attempting to overturn Washington, DC's law on gay marriage!
The District has been issuing marriage licenses for same-sex couples since last year, but Jackson filed a lawsuit against the Board of Elections and Ethics after it refused to to put a measure on the ballot that would define marriage as an act between a man and a woman.
The board ruled that such a ballot would authorize discrimination, so the pastor then appealed to the Supreme Court this morning - and was once again SHOT DOWN!
Wonderful! We're so thrilled to hear that these kind of blatant attempts to strip people of their human rights aren't being put up with in the courts!
EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!
