What is most striking about all the recent court decisions striking down state bans on gay marriage is the diversity of judges and states. Since last June, 13 judges in red and blue states have either overturned bans on gay marriage or ordered states to recognize gay marriages from other states, the Sunday Eagle reported. Opponents of gay marriage have tried to blame these decisions on “activist judges.” But as Thomas Witt, executive director of Equality Kansas, noted, “judges of all backgrounds and political affiliations are striking down these state-level bans.” It’s likely only a matter of time before Kansas’ ban is struck down, too.
