Lawsuit challenges Kentucky same-sex marriage ban

From The Jurist:

The constitutional amendment, passed in 2004 with approval of 75 percent of voters, allows only a marriage between man and woman to be valid or recognized.

In addition, the organization claims that such violations are prohibited by Section 2 of Kentucky's Constitution, guaranteeing freedom from "absolute and arbitrary power."
