Sam Brownback isn’t happy about the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage
Today, marriage equality is the law of the land. All 50 states — even Kansas.
But in the Sunflower State, frowny-faced Gov. Sam Brownback isn’t thrilled that people who love each other can get married. Above is the official word from Brownback.
And here’s the text of his statement: “Activist courts should not overrule the people of this state, who have clearly supported the Kansas Constitution’s definition of marriage as being between one man and one woman. We will review the ruling carefully to understand its effects on the people of Kansas.”
The effects are pretty clear. Same-sex couples in Kansas can legally get married, and Brownback can’t stop them. Equality rules.
