In Kentucky, and SC, gay marriage sequences continue to play out in the courts


The latest from Kentucky is that the marriage licenses performed in Kim Davis’s absence will stand up under Kentucky law, but Kim may have disobeyed the Federal court by even suggesting they were invalid, as if she had “altered” them with her own religion.

And the South Carolina Supreme Court takes up a case involving dispersion of property between the Episcopal denomination and congregations splitting off over gay marriage, as in a story by John Mon here. The decision will have nothing to do with gay marriage itself.
