Breaking News: Supreme Court Rejects Appeal of D.C. Gay Marriage Law

      The Supreme Court today declined to hear the case challenging the legality of the District of Columbia's marriage equality law. The case was decided a few months ago by the D.C. Court of Appeals, who found that it would not be consistent with the Districts Human Rights Charter ( which does not allow discrimination based upon sexual orientation) for the people to vote of the marriage equality rights of gays and lesbians.

       The appeal was brought to the U.S. Supreme Court by Maryland pastor, Bishop Harry Jackson. This alone causes me to ask, why the hell would a Maryland pastor care what is going on in the district...worry about your own state buddy.

       Regardless, today is a great day in the District of Columbia...for now gay and lesbians are never going to be in fear of losing their right to wed.
