OKLAHOMA (KFOR) – The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals has made a big ruling on a case involving the Oklahoma gay marriage ban, according to a report from affiliate station KFOR.

The ruling states that’s Oklahoma’s law is unconstitutional, saying, that gay couples have a right to be married, and that right is protected by the constitution, the report states.

“The Court has been vigilant in striking down impermissible constraints on the right to marriage, but there is nothing in the earlier cases suggesting that marriage has historically been defined as only an emotional union among willing adults,” the ruling states.

A federal judge already ruled Oklahoma’s ban on gay marriage was unconstitutional in January, according to KFOR.

Court officials in LeFlore and Sequoyah counties told 5NEWS they were unsure how they were going to proceed with the issue of same-sex marriage licenses at this time, but they were looking into it.

    A ‘major ruling’ for whom? The less than 3% of LGBTs in the entire country? The liberal media who shoves this down our throats at every chance?

  • George Dubya Bush

    Right again, Elfphalus. Marriage is meant to be between a man and a woman, not a man and Raul, his Lithuanian butler…………err sorry, lost my train of thought there but you get the point. Anyhow, I remember when i’s a kid I jokingly asked my dad at a party “why’s mom’s picture on the dollar bill?” and he stopped right in the middle of his dance with Rock Hudson to slap the tar outta me. It smacked so loud it caused Liberachie to stop playin for a second. But i lernt my lesson. Ya dont even joke bout that kinda stuff. Besides, there aint even enuff of them LBGTYN people to swing a vote so it really is a nonissue..


      Hey GWB…it’s time to stop blaming Bush for your stupidity. Using the DUBYA in your complaint just show how out of touch you really are…..Your comment was stupid as well as disturbing. We get it, you are a liberal lost cause….NEXT!
