SCOTUS Okays Marriage Equality In Kansas

Friends of Dorothy can get married in her home state.

The Supreme Court will allow same-sex marriages to go forward in Kansas, lifting a stay of an order that struck down the state’s ban on gay marriage.

BuzzFeed first reported Wednesday evening on the order from Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas dissented.

A federal judge had declared Kansas’s gay marriage ban unconstitutional last week, but Sotomayor temporarily halted same-sex marriages from proceeding Monday.

The new order Wednesday will now allow marriages to take place.

Those folks at Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka now have some job security in their own backyard.
