Obama: federal judge strikes down Virginia’s same-sex ‘marriage’ ban

Yet another federal judge has overturned a state law banning same-sex “marriage,” as Judge Arenda Wright Allen declared Virginia’s law enshrining true marriage unconstitutional Thursday. The state becomes the fourth to have a legislative or voter-approved measure banning gay marriage overturned by a federal judge, reports LifeSiteNews.

“The Court is compelled to conclude that Virginia's Marriage Laws unconstitutionally deny Virginia's gay and lesbian citizens the fundamental freedom to choose to marry,” Allen wrote in her 41-page decision, which Mother Jones called “incredibly moving.” “Government interests in perpetuating traditions, shielding state matters from federal interference, and favoring one model of parenting over others must yield to this country's cherished protections that ensure the exercise of the private choices of the individual citizen regarding love and family.”

“We have arrived upon another moment in history when 'We the People' becomes more inclusive, and our freedom more perfect,” wrote Allen.

The judge stayed her own decision pending appeal, which means homosexual couples will not immediately be permitted to marry in Virginia. Newly-installed state Attorney General Mark Herring, a Democrat, said that although he supports making same-sex “marriage” legal – not only did he refuse to argue the state’s case, he joined the lawsuit in favor of the homosexual plaintiffs – he expects that the matter will not be decided until it reaches the Supreme Court.

“This decision is a victory for the Constitution and for treating everyone equally under the law,” Herring said. “It is the latest step in a journey towards equality for all Virginians, no matter who they are or whom they love.”
