Judge Rules Kentucky Must Recognize Out-of-State Gay Marriages

Nunst027

According to today’s ruling by a federal judge, Kentucky must recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states.

U.S. District Court Judge John G. Heyburn II concluded that although the government may define marriage and attach benefits to marriage, it can’t “impose a traditional or faith-based limitation without a sufficient justification for it.”
