ACLU Revises Challenge to Kansas Gay Marriage Ban

6a00d8341c730253ef01b7c70bf9f9970b-500wi

The American Civil Liberties Union has updated its challenge to Kansas’s ban on same sex marriage to prevent the state from ignoring marriages performed in and out of state. The revised lawsuit is looking to require the state to extend insurance and taxes benefits to gay and lesbian married couples as well as allow them to legally change their names on identification to reflect their unions. The original suit was filed on the behalf of a single lesbian couple who were not granted marriage licenses in two different counties. The suit now adds an additional three couples agitating to have their marriages recognized.

Previously, Kansas governor Sam Brownback publicly asserted his refusal to grant gay couples the same marital benefits afforded to their straight counterparts.

"We are very disappointed the state has continued to play this obstruction game," said ACLU attorney Doug Bonney. "The time is here to recognize the marriages as valid and lawful just like any other marriage.”

Secretary of the Kansas Department of Revenue, Nick Jordan; director of the division of Vehicles, Lisa Kaspar; and director of the State Employee Health Plan have been added as defendants following the ACLU’s new revision. According to the lawsuit the each of the newly added defendants represents a Kansas agency responsible for discriminating against same sex married couples.

10 Ways Facebook Creeps All Up In Your Private Business: VIDEO

Facebook

Did you know Facebook can collect information on you based on which wireless network you connect to? Or that it can predict your sexual orientation? Although, to be fair, if your "like" section has pages like "Tom Daley", "RuPaul's Drag Race", and "The Official Donna Summer," it probably doesn't take a shady data mining company to figure out you might just be gay.

Slovakia to Hold Public Vote On Gay Marriage Next Year

Andrej_Kiska_Senate_of_Poland

Slovakia's president Andrej Kiska yesterday announced the country will hold a referendum on same-sex marriage on February 7th, 2015, reports ABC.

The announcement comes after the conservative group Alliance for Family gathered around 400,000 signatures supporting the vote.

6a00d8341c730253ef01bb0792e382970d-500wiAlthough Slovakia's constitutional court last month ruled that such a referendum does not violate the country’s constitution, it rejected a question on registered partnership as part of the vote.

U.S. anti-gay Christian legal organization Alliance Defending Freedom (a group whose efforts promoting bigotry abroad were profiled in the HRC's Export of Hate" report) lobbied the constitutional court in favor of the referendum. 

 The referendum will ask voters:

If they would like marriage to be defined as a union between a man and a woman.

If gay couples should be banned from adopting children.

If children should have to attend sex education classes against parents’ wishes.

Slovakia has no civil partnership provision for same-sex couples.  The country’s constitution was already changed earlier this year to define marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
