‘Fetish’ marriage laws ‘forced’ on gay couples
- by admin
A judge in Georgia has issued a nationwide order forcing same-sex couples to wed in the state, a step that could lead to more couples being forced to get married.
The order comes in response to a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia, which said it was forced to issue a ruling because Georgia’s “marriage law” discriminates against gay couples.
A Georgia judge has ruled that gay couples must get married under state law, forcing same sex couples to get a license from the state.
“The issue of forced marriage was raised by a Georgia couple who were denied a marriage license by the state,” Judge Mark Johnson said in a ruling published on the court’s website Friday.
“Their state-sanctioned conduct in denying them a marriage licenses is in violation of Georgia’s marriage laws.”
Johnson said he will issue a decision next month.
The Georgia Supreme Court has already issued several rulings to stop gay marriage bans in other states.
The state Supreme Court ruled last month that Georgia’s ban on gay marriage violates the constitution.
Nathan Deal has vowed to appeal the ruling.
