LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentuckians on both sides of the gay marriage debate are finding reasons to praise the U.S. Supreme Court's rulings on the issue.
Martin Cothran, a spokesman for The Family Foundation, says Kentucky's Marriage Amendment was left intact. Kentucky voters amended the state's Constitution in 2004 to define marriage as something exclusively between a man and woman.
The high court on Wednesday struck down a provision of a federal law denying federal benefits to married gay couples. It also cleared the way for resumption of same-sex marriage in California. But the court said nothing about the validity of gay marriage bans in California and other states including Kentucky.
Democratic U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth of Louisville says the rulings bring the country closer to providing full equality for all Americans.
