Equality Virginia disappointed in Supreme Court decision to stay marriage ruling

gay-equalityIn response to U.S. Supreme Court decision to stay the marriage ruling of the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals, the following can be attributed to James Parrish, executive director of Equality Virginia:

“It is disappointing that the Supreme Court stayed the 4th Circuit Court’s decision,” said James Parrish, executive director of Equality Virginia. “Lesbian and gay Virginians have waited long enough for the freedom to marry. Loving couples – and families – should not have to endure yet another standstill before their commitment to one another is recognized here in Virginia. Every day that this ruling is stayed, more lesbian and gay Virginians will suffer undue harm as they wait to insure their spouses, wait to adopt the children they are raising, and wait to have their relationships affirmed by the Commonwealth. Equality Virginia urges the Supreme Court to take this case as soon as possible and hopes that it will rule once and for all in favor of marriage equality.”
