DC marriage opponents fail in request for stay from Supreme Court

Acting as Circuit Justice for the DC Circuit, Chief Justice Roberts refused Tuesday to grant a stay of Washington, DC's Religious Freedom and Civil Marriage Equality Amendment Act, which allows same-sex marriage.  The stay had been sought by conservative Christian and African-American opponents of marriage equality led by pastor Harry Jackson (whose church is in Maryland, not DC).  Our colleague Ruthann Robson has coverage here.  The Washington Post story is here.  The Roberts in-chambers opinion is here.
