gay marriage

A law that would protect gays from discrimination in Idaho could finally have Republican support in the legislature next year, after a decade. A Republican working on the bill says it would be a balance between gay rights and religious freedom.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled this morning that same-sex couples have the constitutional right to marry in every state.

Idaho lawmakers unhappy with the legalization of gay marriage in the state are calling on Congress to do something about “activist judges.”

The U.S. Supreme Court Friday agreed to take up cases challenging gay marriage bans in Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee and Kentucky.

A federal appeals court Thursday upheld gay marriage bans in Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio and Michigan. It’s a break with the trend in most courts.

That could provide a legal opening for Idaho Governor Butch Otter, who has vowed to continue the fight against gay marriage in his state. The issue may have even helped him win re-election.
