SCOTUS Rejects Appeal from Same-Sex Marriage Opponents in D.C.
Bishop Harry Jackson's appeal to the Supreme Court to let D.C. residents vote on marriage equality, which was approved there last year, has been rejected by the Supreme Court, the AP reports:
"The court did not comment Tuesday in turning away a challenge from a Maryland pastor and others who are trying to get a measure on the ballot to allow Washingtonians to vote on a measure that defines marriage as between a man and a woman. Bishop Harry Jackson led a lawsuit against the district's Board of Elections and Ethics after it refused to put that initiative on the ballot. The board ruled that the ballot question would in effect authorize discrimination."
